MARYLAND HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STUDY. VOLUME II. A COMPARISON OF MARYLAND HIGHWAY DRAINAGE PRACTICES WITH THOSE OF OTHER AGENCIES

One of the key objectives of the Highway Drainage Study is a review of Maryland State Highway Administration drainage practice and comparing it with the approaches followed by other states. In developing this comparison of Maryland State Highway Administration drainage practices with those of other agencies, the Highway Departments of the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and California were contacted. The report includes discussions of some of the key information contained in the drainage manuals of these other states and comparisons with the material included in Interim Hydraulic criteria for the Design of Highways used by Maryland. Emphasis is placed on the methods used to determine peak discharges because this area shows the greatest variability among the states.
