Lessons Learned In Roadway Design: A Few Nuggets Of Knowledge

With senior roadway design staff approaching retirement and 50% of the workforce to be millennials by 2020 (1), there are many design experiences that should be passed on to the next generation of roadway engineers and designers. It is important that this knowledge transfer occurs so the next generation of engineers can learn to minimize the number of design challenges they may experience. If some of these challenges can be reduced or avoided, the engineers can focus on reaching a beneficial design with fewer difficulties. This paper examines lessons learned in roadway design from the perspective of a chief roadway engineer and includes understanding design criteria, horizontal geometrics, combined geometrics, coordination with other disciplines, maintenance of traffic (MOT), plan production, and designing roads for the future.
