Abstract:

Roadside development was investigated from all facets. A history of efforts to guide the practical applications of roadside development to America's rapidly growing highway system is summarized. The primary premise that highway location and design must be attractive as well as utilitarian has been expanded to include the right of way land, scenic areas, and land adjacent to the highway. Conservation of natural resources in highway design and construction is emphasized. Erosion control, landscape plantings, roadside rest areas, scenic turnouts and overlooks are discussed in terms of planning, design, and materials. Safety, maintenance, and future aspects of roadside development are also considered. legal authority and techniques for development are appended.
