Description

Keep them safe —but keep them!

The destruction of historic roads to comply with current highway safety practices has been undertaken with little regard for preservation options. In Saving Historic Roads, Paul Daniel Marriott examines the complex issues surrounding historic roads and provides design and policy guidelines for adapting contemporary transportation laws and engineering practices to these resources. Recognizing the importance of eliminating highway hazards, he offers strategies demonstrating that modern highway safety and historic preservation are not mutually exclusive.

This indispensable resource:

  • Defines criteria for evaluating a road's historic significance
  • Identifies effective preservation strategies
  • Explains transportation policy and laws
  • Recommends specific steps advocates can take to initiate, promote, and implement a highway preservation program
  • Defines terms specific to engineering and highway design
  • Features case studies of successful preservation projects.

Saving Historic Roads is essential for transportation engineers and planners, government resource managers, policymakers, and anyone interested in preserving our nation's historic roads.
