COMPUTERIZED ROADWAY DESIGN SYSTEM
This project, as part of the Federal Highway Administration, (FHWA) Demonstration Projects Program, was intended to demonstrate the capabilities and advantages of the Texas Roadway Design System in production engineering environments for increasing the productivity and proficiency of the highway design engineer. This report summarizes the various activities conducted under Demonstration Project No. 30, Computerized Roadway Design System (RDS). These activities included distribution of the system, conducting promotional presentations, training, providing technical assistance, enhancement of the system, and formation of an RDS User Group. This Demonstration Project has shown that use of RDS can improve engineer efficiency and reduce design costs.
