Design guidelines are included for freeways, arterials, collectors, and local roads, in both urban and rural locations, paralleling the functional classification used in highway planning. The book is organized into functional chapters to stress the relationship between highway design and highway function.

Except as noted in this chapter, the values shown in AASHTO’s A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets(the Green Book) may be used as minimum values if they are lower than similar values shown herein.

A controlling criterion that does not meet the minimum value is a design exception and is subject to approval.

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials recently released the 7 th edition of its “Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets” manual – commonly referred to as the “Green Book” – which is considered by many to be the pre-eminent industry guide to current highway and street design research and practices.

This is the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center. For decades, the purpose and goal of street design in the United States was to move as much motorized traffic as expeditiously as possible from point A to point B, regardless of whether the traffic was moving along a major freeway or commercial arterial, or through a city center, village main street, or even a residential neighborhood.

According to the Policy, ramp design speeds should not be less than the low range presented in Exhibitwith.
