By: Evink, Gary LPublication details: Washington DC National Cooperative Highway Research Program, 2002; Synthesis of Highway Practice 305, Description: 78 sISBN: 0309069238Subject(s): USA | Highway design | Animal | Crossing the road | Nature protection | Ecological engineering | Planning | Culvert | Viaduct | 15Online resources: Publikation/Publication Bibl.nr: VTI P1314:305Location: Abstract: A vast storehouse of information exists on nearly every subject of concern to highway administrators and engineers. Much of this information has resulted from both research and the successful application of solutions to the problems faced by practitioners in their daily work. Because previously there has been no systematic means for compiling such useful information and making it available to the entire community, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has, through the mechanism of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, authorized the Transportation Research Board to undertake a continuing project to search out and synthesize useful knowledge from all available sources and to prepare documented reports on current practices in the subject areas of concern. This synthesis series reports on various practices, making specific recommendations where appropriate but without the detailed directions usually found in handbooks or design manuals. Nonetheless, these documents can serve similar purposes, for each is a compendium of the best knowledge available on those measures found to be the most successful in resolving specific problems. The extent to which these reports are useful will be tempered by the user’s knowledge and experience in the particular problem area.
