This document was developed for the Texas Department of Transportation to serve as a Department manual addressing highway operations. The information in the manual covers a wide range of operational issues related to the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and management of highways. Part I of the manual serves as an introduction to the manual and the concept of highway operations. Part II addresses operational considerations for project development, preliminary design, final design, and scheduled activities. Part III addresses systems management, data collection, operational analysis, incident management, control strategies, and information systems. Part IV contains the appendices, abbreviations and definitions, annotated bibliography, and index. Updates to the manual will be issued in the future. The Texas Transportation Institute should be contacted to determine the status of the updates.
