Description

 

This book contains a compilation of technical notes that I have taken on the topic of rural road design and planning over years of talking with civil engineers, contractors, designers and landowners. The purpose of the book is to introduce the reader to this vast and complex topic of study and to provide guidance into the stages of preliminary road planning and design.
