HIGHWAY AS ENVIRONMENT
The report describes several methods that may have application in the location and design of proposed highways and the improvement of existing facilities with respect to their relationship to the environment. Data on driver response to visual features has led to the development of a model-making and a photographic technique that might be used to test design proposals for improved safety, serviceability and the effect on the environment. Case studies of four highway types, were used to identify the features significant for the highway user, adjacent property owners, and the community. Proposed design changes and controls are outlined.
