Customary. This book is a guide. It is not a standard, nor is it a design policy. It is intended to use as a resource document from which individual highway agencies can develop standards and policies.

This book points out an all too often ignored point: that arguments over sprawl and transportation are really arguments about race and class, because when government provides roads to accelerate suburban sprawl but State barriers to highway transportation book not create transit to reach highway-created suburbs, it essentially freezes the carless poor, elderly and disabled out of employment and civic life.4/4(1).

barriers. Other measures include managing traffic, moving the highway and acquiring undeveloped property to serve as a buffer zone between the highway and the area affected by traffic noise. Noise barriers are normally solid wall-like structures built between the noise source (highway) and the impacted activity area to reduce noise levels.

Type I I Noise Barrier - A noise barrier designed to abate traffic noise from an existing highway where no other transportation improvement project is planned.

Type III Project – A highway project were no traffic noise analysis is required. Eligibility Criteria for Consideration of Noise Abatement A. National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Overview The objective of this research was to review and update the information contained within the following AASHTO-AGC-ARTBA Joint Committee, Task Force 13 (TF13) publication ‘A Guide to Standardized Highway Barrier.

barrier, including bridge railing, is designed for containment and redirection of different types of vehicles. Longitudinal barriers—A barrier whose primary function is to prevent penetration and to safely redirect an errant vehicle away from a roadside or median obstacle.

Median—The portion of a divided highway. AASHTO – The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials – is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

Practices and procedures, engineering instructions and design guidance are based on A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) also known as the AASHTO Green Book, or other related documents and publications.

Active transportation facilities are particularly important in low-income and minority communities, or communities with high percentages of new immigrants. People in those communities are less likely to own vehicles, and unsafe streets might pose a barrier to using active transportation.

Related indicators in the THT. Traffic barriers (sometimes called Armco barriers, also known in North America as guardrails or guard rails and in Britain as crash barriers) keep vehicles within their roadway and prevent them from colliding with dangerous obstacles such as boulders, sign supports, trees, bridge abutments, buildings, walls, and large storm drains, or from traversing steep (non-recoverable) slopes or entering.

As traffic volumes and congestion rise, the demand for effective median safety features grows higher. Cable median barriers (CMB) are life saving, adaptable traffic devices ideally suited for use in existing medians to prevent cross-over crashes, and are one of the most effective safety measures state transportation departments can deploy to protect motorists on today's congested highways.

Noise barriers block the direct path of sound waves from the highway to homes and businesses along the highway. They do not eliminate noise, they only reduce the noise. To be considered effective, a noise barrier must reduce noise impact to receptors by at least 5 decibels.
