VOLUME XI OF THE HIGHWAY DRAINAGE GUIDELINES: AASHTO GUIDELINES FOR HIGHWAYS ALONG COASTAL ZONES AND LAKESHORES

Highways that encroach upon the coast of oceans including bays and estuaries, the shore of large lakes and reservoirs, the lower reach of many major river systems, and tidal basins present unique circumstances which the hydraulics engineer must address. More than 50% of the states border or contain such coastlines and/or lakeshores. These guidelines address in detail the special aspects of wind, wave, current, and tidal action upon banks and shores. The guidelines are organized as follows: (1) Introduction; (2) Data Collection; (3) Shoreline Topography; (4) Characteristics of Waves and Currents; (5) Design Considerations; (6) Shore Protection Devices; (7) Planning for Shoreline Changes; (8) Hydraulic-Related Construction and Maintenance Considerations; and (9) References.
