This handbook was prepared under Contract No. DOT-FH-11-8518 for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration. Information on the functionality of components in typical safety rest areas on Federal-aid highways of the Interstate, Primary, and Secondary Systems is provided for nine convenience components (i.e., picnic tables, shelters, trash receptacles, drinking fountains, etc.) and on nine comfort components (partitions, walls and floors, toilets, wash basins, hand dryers, etc.). Ranges of typical operating and maintenance costs of safety rest areas which have modern comfort stations are also included. This handbook is intended to expand the data available to highway department personnel faced with choosing one type of component from several allernatives. It is not intended to restrict design alternatives but to provide additional insight into the problems many states have experienced with different types of components in their safety rest areas and any solutions that have been developed.
