Highways today have become instruments for economic progress -- a principal means of relieving traffic congestion and enhancing safety in urban and suburban areas.
Expensive and time-consuming distances separate people from available employment at city edges and surrounding suburbs. One concept, mass rail and rubber-tired transit, with fringe and/or central business district parking for reasonable fees, would facilitate the movement of masses. Another program, Traffic Operations to improve capacity and safety, involves expanding the federal aid primary system to involve future improvements, such as channelized intersections, left turn slots, preferential bus lanes, and signal control systems.
Due to current capacity constraints, printed versions of our publications - including standards, technical papers, EDGE Reports, scholarly journal articles, books, and paint chips - may experience shipping delays of up to four to six weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience.
