This book provides an overall perspective of how various elements contributing to highway design interact to create a basis for the preliminary route selection and design. It presents projects from the initial provision of a topographic map and specifications through to the investment and user cost estimates of a particular highway. Vertical and horizontal alignment, drainage issues, and potential environmental impacts are also discussed. Intended for use by senior undergraduate and graduate students, this edition: expands on environmental reporting concerns; presents a discussion of economic cost analysis and its applications; includes an outline of route selection and design methods aided by digital terrain and computerized alignment modeling; and furthers realism of design and evaluation in the classroom.
