Highway engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads , bridges , and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods. Standards of highway engineering are continuously being improved.

Transportation Engineering I
This book helps readers maximize effectiveness in all facets of highway engineering including planning, design, operations, safety, and geotechnical engineering. Highway Engineering: Planning, Design, and Operations features a seven part treatment, beginning with a clear and rigorous exposition of highway engineering concepts. These include project development, and the relationship between planning, operations, safety, and highway types functional classification. Planning concepts and a four-step process overview are covered, along with trip generation, equations versus rates, trip distribution, and shortest path models equations versus rates. This is followed by parts concerning applications for horizontal and vertical alignment, highway geometric design, traffic operations, traffic safety, and civil engineering topics. Daniel Findley, P.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. The information details the motivations behind the policies that promote highway resilience, definitions of risk and resilience and the relation- ship between these two concepts, and how agencies are incorporating resilience practices through project development, policy, and design. Given the relative novelty of resilience in transportation, efforts in this report have been made to provide background information on various definitions of resilience that agencies have adopted, the relationship between risk and resilience, and how resilience is being incorporated within highway agencies. The findings of this report reflect information gathered through three primary sources: a thorough literature review, a survey of state DOTs, and five case examples developed through interviews and traditional data gathering with infrastructure agencies incorporating resilience into their programs. A purposeful attempt was made to focus the literature review specifically on resilience and not on associated topics of risk management or climate change modeling of transportation systems, as these topics have been well documented and are not the primary focus of this study.
