Highway-wildlife relationships by Daniel L Leedy( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study assesses, primarily through an extensive literature review, what is known about highway-wildlife relationships and suggests research and management approaches to protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and environmental quality. A cooperative effort to this end among natural resource and highway agency personnel is needed on a continuing basis from the initial planning stages for new highway construction through operation and maintenance. The 20 million or more acres in highway rights-of-way have been largely neglected as wildlife habitat

Noise barrier design handbook by Myles Simpson( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is intended to be a tool for use by the highway designer to aid in the design of noise abatement barriers. It provides a means of defining the geometric configuration of a barrier to produce a desired noise reduction, and also provides a design evaluation and selection procedure in which specific barriers are detailed, and then evaluated in terms of cost, acoustical characteristics, and non-acoustical characteristics (such as durability, ease of maintenance, safety, aesthetics and community acceptance). This handbook guides the designer in the preparation of a design which he believes will be accepted by the community and perform as desired both acoustically and non-acoustically, for reasonable cost

Effects of highway construction and use on big game populations by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pronghorn antelope, mule deer, and elk are affected by right-of-way fences and highway traffic. At least 153 antelope, 561 mule deer, and 10 elk have been killed through vehicle accidents along a 55-mile section of I-80 west of Laramie, Wyoming, during a 5.5-year period. Since antelope are reluctant to jump fences and use underpasses, I-80 is a barrier and the herds are managed accordingly. Antelope can be kept off the highway by maintaining good woven wire fences and preventing snow from drifting over the right-of-way fence. Mule deer jump right-of-way fences, but can be forced to use underpasses by using deer-proof fencing. Both resident and migratory mule deer are affected by roads and traffic. Proper management should provide safe deer crossings thus increasing the safety of the highway user. Since elk are large, they present a greater hazard to motorists, and should be discouraged from crossing highways by proper fencing and road location. New techniques using heart-rate telemetry shows great potential for use in further studies of animal behavior in relation to the ever increasing activities of man
Techniques for rehabilitating pavements without overlays : a systems analysis : final report, Sept. 1976-Sept. 1977 : prepared for Federal Highway Administration, Offices of Research and Development( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study is to determine the feasibility of a variety of innovative techniques for rehabilitating pavements without thick overlays and to develop these techniques to the point where they could be evaluated in the field. Plausible techniques of rehabilitation with minimal disturbance to the existing pavement structure were evaluated, taking maximum advantage of the inherent strength and remaining life of the existing pavement structure. The research was specifically directed away from reflection cracking, drainage failures and pavement recycling. 92 potential techniques for rehabilitating pavements without overlays were identified, analyzed, and their value assessed

Highway subdrainage design by Lyle K Moulton( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be difficult, if not impossible, to select the date when early road builders first became aware of the need for adequate subsurface drainage. However, there is some evidence that this need was recognized almost as soon as formal road building began. Certainly, by the middle of the 18th Century, it was understood that appropriate subsurface drainage was absolutely necessary for the satisfactory long term performance of roadways. The subsequent introduction of 'french drains' and the pavement systems of Tresaguet and MacAdam shows not only an understanding of the problem, but an attempt to incorporate into the roadway design formal measures for the satisfactory removal of water from the pavement structure and subgrade. In the years that have followed these early beginnings, the number of published accounts of research dealing with highway subsurface drainage has undergone a substantial growth. In addition, there has been a steady growth in the knowledge and availability of solutions to problems of fluid flow through porous media. Consequently, we now recognize and understand many of the problems that can be created by excessive subsurface moisture, and we have the means available to provide for the satisfactory control of this moisture. It is the purpose of this manual to provide the designer with the tools to analyze subdrainage problems and to design subsurface drainage facilities to adequately solve these problems
Cut-and-cover tunneling by G. E Wickham( Book )

Highway-vehicle-object simulation model, 1976 by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of reports have been written to document revised and updated versions of the simulation of highway-vehicle-object interactions in a single vehicle highway environment. The programs documented were developed under FHWA sponsorship to provide the highway safety community with an analytical means of evaluating the effects of highway/roadside environment on safety
Effectiveness of highway arterial lighting : final report : prepared for Federal Highway Administration, Offices of Research and Development ; Federal Energy Administration, Office of Energy Conservation and Environment( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research was undertaken to evaluate the cost-benefits of arterial highway lighting treatments in terms of traffic safety and energy usage. The results have shown that total nighttime dry weather accidents are inversely related to visiblity, higher visibility resulting in fewer accidents. Areas with high population densities have a much higher rate than low density areas and CBD areas have a much higher rate than other area types. Regression equations have been developed which predict dry nighttime accident history based on population density, area type and visibility
Vehicle detector placement for high-speed, isolated traffic-actuated intersection control( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was undertaken to improve understanding of how to place vehicle detectors at high-speed (at least 35 mph), isolated, traffic-actuated intersections, and how to test and evaluate alternative detector/controller configurations for intersection traffic safety and efficiency

Accident and speed studies in construction zones : final report : [prepared for Federal Highway Administration, Offices of Research and Development] by Jerry L Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report includes results of two studies of construction zone traffic control. The first study involved analysis of traffic accidents occurring in 79 zones in seven states. Results indicate a before to during accident rate increase of 6.8%. Results also include breakdowns by accident types, severity, light conditions, roadway type, area type, work area roadway type, construction type and state. The second study was field testing of speed reduction methods. Speeds, erratic maneuvers and conflicts were measured at three sites--an urban freeway, a rural freeway, and an urban street. The field studies examined the effect of the following construction zone parameters on vehicle speeds and safety: Sequential flashing arrow boards; speed zoning (advisory and regulatory); enforcement; transverse striping; obliteration of nonappropriate pavement markings; taper length; lane width reduction; and active warning of speed zoning. Recommended guidelines for construction zone traffic controls are also included
