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.

Recognizing the importance of eliminating highway hazards, he offers strategies demonstrating that modern highway safety and historic preservation are not mutually exclusive.

  • 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.
