Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Infrastructure for Urban Growth


Designs in the 1980's have a multitude of parameters from environmental, noise, aesthetics, planners, community groups, political influence and last but not least, legal/liability concerns. With the change in emphasis from symmetrical developments serving many transportation functions and needs to the development of more difficult topographic conditions of today incorporating curvilinear and cul-de-sac street systems, the overall job of the engineer to provide a safe and adequate Project design is challenging. This paper discusses the subject in terms of safety design considerations, design criteria, public streets, standards, sight distance, drainage, and related topics.
