Intended for use by senior undergraduate students in civil engineering and graduate students who require a basic highway design course, the book is structured to complement highway design theory described in existing texts and design guidelines, and to.

Highway Shoulder Design, Construction and Maintenance. Extracts from lecture of Ronald Troop, Maintenance Supervisor, NYS DPW, Highway School. A highway shoulder is a necessary part of all highways.

It is included in the New York State Department of Transportation definition of a road section. A highway shoulder serves several functions.

For situations when a highway pavement is less than 24 feet wide and the highway meets the qualifications stated above for paved shoulders, contact the Pavement Design Section in the Construction and Materials Bureau for assistance.

A true must-read for highway engineers and safety officials, Highway Design and Traffic Safety Engineering Handbook provides up-to-date information that is available nowhere else and a complete, practical program for designing the safest possible roadways.

The authors, who are noted international authorities on highway safety, give you Reviews: 1. Shoulder utilization Some shoulders are used as driving lanes. Design for moderate to heavy traffic use would require additional considerations and additional costs. Other Considerations Presence of utilities The design and construction may be problematic or require additional design features in areas where utilities are present.

The existing highway through Capay had wide shoulders that were used by people walking and on bikes to access the businesses along SR The paved shoulders were created using pigmented, stamped asphalt which is a relatively inexpensive treatment with low maintenance costs.
