ROAD AND TRAFFIC INVENTORIES

lnventario de carreteras y tráfico = lnventaire des routes et de la circulation

This compendium is a product of a 3-year project to enhance rural transportation in developing countries by providing improved access to existing information on the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of low-volume roads. The compendium provides some information about the general highway planning process so that highway engineers and administrators may understand the role of inventories in the decision-making process. However, most of this compendium addresses the actual procedure of collecting and recording road and traffic inventory data. The six texts that have been reprinted in the compendium in full or in excerpted portions are: Maintaining and Using a Rural Road Inventory (University of California, 1957); Guide for a Road Inventory Manual of Instructions (Federal Highway Administration, 1974); Guidelines for Traffic Counts on County Roads (Purdue University, 1962); Outline of the Highway Transportation Planning Process (Federal Highway Administration,1976); Guide for Manual of Instructions for Road Inventory (Federal Highway Administration, 1976); and Guide for Manual of Instructions for Traffic Surveys (Federal Highway Administration, 1976).
