HIGHWAY DRAINAGE GUIDELINES. VOLUMES 1 AND 2

THESE GUIDELINES PRESENT A DESIGN APPROACH TO DRAINAGE AND HYDRAULIC PROBLEMS WHICH INTEGRATES ALL RELATED DISCIPLINES IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING. THE EFFECT OF THE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION ON THE EXISTING DRAINAGE PATTERN AND ON THE POTENTIAL FLOOD HAZARD, AS WELL AS THE EFFECT OF FLOODS ON THE HIGHWAY, MUST BE ASSESSED IN THE PRELIMINARY PLANNING AND DESIGN STAGES. HYDROLOGIC ANALYSIS IS A MOST IMPORTANT STEP PRIOR TO THE HYDRAULIC DESIGN OF A HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STRUCTURE. FINALLY, THE CONTROL OF SOIL AND WATER IS BASIC TO THE PROTECTION OF THE ROAD STRUCTURE AND THE CONSERVATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFORT.
