    Geometric Design. Title 23 USC provides that design standards for projects on the National Highway System (NHS) must be approved by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation in cooperation with the State highway departments. The Secretary has delegated this authority to the Federal Highway Administrator. Median Barriers. The principles of guardrail usage are equally applicable to median barriers. However, median barriers additionally prevent errant vehicles from crossing the median area of divided highways and entering the opposing traveled ways. Therefore, they must be capable of containing and redirecting from two directions and on both sides.

    For projects on the National Highway System use the roadway widths presented in the Green Book as minimum design criteria. On rural roadways, off the National Highway System, with design ADT less than 2,, use the lane and shoulder widths shown in Tables . FINAL. ORDER. Standards and Regulations for Subdivision Streets and State Highway Access. Summary of the Evidence and Information Submitted. In the August Delaware Register (17 Del. Reg. ), the Delaware Department of Transportation’s Planning Division proposed revisions to its regulations for access to State-maintained roads and for planning, design, construction, and .

    Main Roads are responsible for delivering and management of a safe and efficient main road network in Western Australia. Representing one of the world's most expansive road networks, we are committed to working cooperatively and productively across all levels of government, to ensure our road network meets the needs of the community, industry and stakeholders.

PIGMAN AND KENNETH R. AGENT Kentucky, along with most other states, ha in the pa t relied on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO) Guide for Selecting, Locating. and Design ing Traffic Barriers for guidance in the installation of guardrail.

Criteria for installing median barriers on these facilities must consider much more than just median width and ADT. Chapter 6, "Median Barriers," of the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide (RDG) includes the following discussion relating to non-access controlled facilities.

Roadside barriers (called guardrails, guiderails, guidefences, etc.), median barriers, and bridge rails are the three types of longitudinal barriers.

Each of these types performs a particular function as does the crash cushion and these functions are delineated in this guide. This guide focuses on how to repair (not design) the most widely used barrier–the strong post W-beam guardrail identified as SGR in the Standardized Highway Barrier Hardware Guide.

(The term guardrail, and in some states guiderail, is commonly used either for just W-beam barriers or for barriers in general; for future use in this guide, the term W-beam guardrail will refer to the strong. Continuous barrier methods include,but are not limited to, guardrails, concrete or brick reinforcedwalls, and concrete Jersey barriers Discrete Barrier—If a vulnerable play area has an exitgate on the traffic side of the play zone, then pedestrian accessthrough a barrier is necessary and a discrete barrier should beprovided on the.

While it may seem as if most Portable Water-Filled Barriers (PWFB) products are also upgradeable to longitudinal barriers meeting the crash testing criteria of NCHRP Report for Test Level 2 or 3 conditions, rules for using PWFB as longitudinal barriers are under the auspices of the Office of Roadway Engineering and are summarized here.

The design of all elements of the highway cross section adds greatly to its appearance. Design details include the design and width of the median and traffic barriers and the selection of plant material.

All these elements contribute to the theme of the roadway and should be considered as a unit. "Highway safety features" are defined, in part, as devices placed on the roadside to reduce the severity of accidents involving vehicles that might otherwise strike a fixed object, another vehicle, an embankment, etc.

Examples include guardrails, bridge rails, median barriers, crash cushions, and breakaway supports for signs and light poles. A review of the experience of 23 states on the use and effectiveness of cable median barriers is presented.

As of23 states have installed more than 4, km (2, mi) of cable median barriers. A median is the portion of the highway separating opposing directions of the traveled way.

Medians are highly desirable elements on all streets or roads with four or more lanes. Introduction. Standard. Traffic control devices shall be defined as all signs, signals, markings and other devices used to regulate, warn or guide traffic placed on, over or adjacent to a street, highway, pedestrian facility, bikeway or "private road open to public travel" (see definition in EPG ) by authority of a public agency or official having jurisdiction or, in the case of a.
