This course focuses on the highway design process, beginning with transportation requirements and soil mechanics and continuing with highway location, site planning, geometric design and pavement design. The knowledge gained equips students for project work. The course culminates with students’ preparation (using CAD) and presentation of final engineering drawings of a section of roadway. This project is evaluated with respect to alignment, safety, aesthetic impact, construction cost and professional quality. Labs will involve the use of a soil testing lab and visits to nearby road construction sites will be scheduled. (Prerequisite: CVET 220C)
