HIGHWAYS: A GUIDE TO THEIR DESIGN AND RE-DESIGN
This book, while not a complete handbook of highway design, nevertheless provides a great deal of useful information for someone confronted with designing a highway, supervising a highway design, or teaching highway design. It is intended for someone who already has some technical background, such as a civil engineer, city road commissioner or professional surveyor. A modest list of references is provided at the beginning of each chapter. They include Applied References which are almost always mandatory and Background References which need to be employed if their particular subject is important to the specific design project. There are 16 chapters, as follows: Overview and the Planning Effort; Topography; Environment; Alternatives; Geotechnics and Soils; Preliminary Geometry; Pavements; Aesthetics; Water; Final Geometry; Drainage and Erosion Control; Structures; Roadside; Traffic, Safety and Signs; Right of Way; and Design.
