Abstract

"This thesis is a comprehensive treatment of present methods practiced by the various Highway Departments in the United States. It presents in particular current methods used by the State Highway Departments and the Public Roads Administration in marking no-passing zones throughout the country. For a long time it has seemed to the author that such a study was needed by both students and highway engineers. Road-design information of great value has developed over the years and often has been published but never assembled in a single orderly presentation stripped of excessive overlapping"--Preface, page ii.
