Summary

Water management for winter roads needs to be carefully considered and planned in order to achieve a high level of environmental performance. Where water from a road surface or ditch needs to be managed, planning ahead can help achieve a high level of environmental performance with respect to protecting streams from sedimentation. Winter roads function well when frozen, yet are highly erodible during non-frozen periods. This paper presents aspects of planning and construction regarding water management for winter roads and focuses on a trial construction of a cross-ditch beginning with installation of a log bundle during road construction and ending with its removal during road deactivation.
