Saving Historic Roads: Design and Policy Guidelines (Preservation Press)
Keep them safe —but keep them!

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.
