4. PAVEMENT DRAINAGE (Based on HEC-22, Third Edition, revised August 2013) Effective drainage of highway pavements is essential to the maintenance of highway service level and to traffic safety. Water on the pavement can interrupt traffic, reduce skid resistance, increase potential for hydroplaning, limit visibility due to splash and spray, and cause difficulty in steering […]
