DESIGN RISK ANALYSIS. VOLUME II: USERS GUIDE. FINAL REPORT

This users information guide was developed for design engineers with responsibility for reconstruction and design of new highways on Federal Lands. The guide relates design features of Federal Lands highways to key traffic safety and operational analyses, and design guidelines for the following areas: horizontal and vertical alignment, stopping sight distance, cross-section, roadside, intersections, narrow bridges and interchanges. The guide is oriented toward problems faced by design engineers concerned with evaluation and documentation of design exceptions for special cases where full design standards are difficult to meet. Volume I is the Research Report, which provides background on the guidelines, procedures, and characteristics of Federal Lands highways.
