Ohio Research Institute for Transportation and the Environment at OU Questionnaire

May 31, 2017

The Ohio Research Institute for Transportation and the Environment (ORITE) at Ohio University is currently working on a research project as part of Ohio's Research Initiative for Locals (ORIL) funded through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). The project focuses on chip seal applications on low-volume routes. Researchers are asking county, township, and municipalities to give feedback on construction, performance, and other information pertaining to chip seals.


The goal of this study is to assess the current state of chip sealing on low-volume roads maintained by counties, townships and municipalities. To meet the objectives of the study a questionnaire was developed to collect information about chip seal practices directly from Ohio pavement preservation practitioners. Additionally, respondents who believe they have particularly successful (or unsuccessful) chip seal practices or projects are invited to indicate their willingness to contribute additional information to be used as a case study for the research. The questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The results of the synthesis will assist with the research goal of developing chip seal best practices for low volume roads. The project team requests questionnaire responses be submitted by June 30, 2017.
