Patrol Grading

Patrol Grading is a maintenance activity designed to restore the driving surface of unsealed roads by removing irregularities, corrugations, pot holes, etc. The grader operator will typically remove these irregularities by cutting the surface of the road or filling them with material moved back and forth across the road with the grader.
