Much like people, every road, every highway, has its own personality...its own character

Roadway Inventory Program (RIP)

The Road Inventory Program (RIP) Section manages the nationwide Road Inventory Program for the National Park Service.  With the use of state-of-the-art equipment and engineering expertise, this program documents the condition of pavements, geometrics and features locations on existing park roads and parkways.  The data collected includes a video log that can be used by the appropriate Federal Lands Management Agency and Federal Highway Administration managers to define and support decisions for improvement projects.  This information is integrated into a Geographic Information System (GIS) and a Pavement Management (PMS) application within EFLHD.
