Traffic and Highway Engineering

Traffic and Highway Engineering

Traffic and Highway Engineering, Fourth Edition, is designed for students in engi-
neering programs where courses in transportation, highway, or traffic engineering are

offered. In most cases, these courses are taught in the third or fourth year but are also
covered at the graduate level. This book also is designed to serve as a professional
reference. Thus, the objectives of this textbook are: (1) To be a contemporary and
complete text in highway and traffic engineering that can be used primarily at the
undergraduate level. It may be used at the graduate level for courses that emphasize
highway topics. Due to its complete coverage of the material, the textbook is designed
for flexible use in developing a single course or for use in two or more courses. (2) To
serve as a reference for engineers in the highway field and as a study guide for use in

preparing for the professional engineering license exam, review courses, and prepa-
ration for graduate comprehensive exams in transportation engineering.

Transportation is essential for a nation’s development and growth. In both the
public and private sector, opportunities for engineering careers in transportation
are exciting and rewarding. Elements are constantly being added to the world’s
highway, rail, airport, and mass transit systems, and new techniques are being applied

for operating and maintaining the systems safely and economically. Many organiza-
tions and agencies exist to plan, design, build, operate, and maintain the nation’s trans-
portation system.
