DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR THE CONTROL OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW

Blowing snow is a problem because: it forms drifts on roads that stop traffic and cause accidents; increases snow removal costs; reduces driver visibility; causes slush and ice; and leads to pavement damage. Blowing snow can be controlled, but to be successful, control measures must be carefully engineered. Drift control measures should be designed as carefully as other highway appurtenances because improperly designed measures can endanger the travelling public. This book provides all the information needed to design effective and economical measures for controlling snowdrifts and reducing the concentration of snow in the air.
