Closure to "Intersection Construction Cost Functions for Alignment Optimization," by Eungcheol Kim, Manoj K. Jha, and Paul Schonfeld

A closure to a discussion of an article with the aforementioned title, published in this journal (Volume 130, No. 2, March/April 2004), is presented. The closure, by A. Garcia and J. M. Campoy, was published in the current issue. The authors appreciate the discussion on how their estimation methods for pavement areas and earthwork volumes could be extended to cases where intersecting roads are circular. This additional precision could be important in some detailed design problems, but is unlikely to significantly affect results in road-location planning studies or preliminary design. The authors feel that their simpler method may be preferable for such planning and design applications.
