AbstractThe escalating cost of repairing road damage resulting from poorly performing restored utilitycuts within the right-of-way of urban roads is creating serious financial stress on cities and utilitycompanies alike. Despite the fact that utility cuts are normally restored based on specific designand construction practices, they continue to perform poorly in many cases. As a resultdisagreement between cities and utility providers emerged and led to litigation in a number ofcases. The research project presented here was developed in response to the need of improvingthe long-term performance of restored utility cuts by identifying and resolving technicaldifficulties involved in the restoration process.
