Highway and Transportation Engineering II

This subject covers the techniques used in the design and construction of highways. Topics include road classifications, sight distances, circular and spiral curves, super elevation, profile design, cross section design, quantity take-offs and costs estimates, introduction to intersections and interchanges. This course will focus on the design theory, emphasizing related geometry, industry conventions and agency standards. A comprehensive design project lab is carried out to introduce industry related Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) software applications and to reinforce the lecture concepts.
