book as the “Green Book” – which is considered by many to be the pre-eminent industry guide to current highway and street design research and practices. The earlier policies were superseded in May when AASHO published A Policy on Geometric Design of Rural Highways, known as the “Blue Book” because of the color of its cover.

AASHO would continue to update the Blue Book “to reflect the ever changing data in the dynamic art of highway engineering,” as the edition put it. The Committee, then titled the Committee on Planning and Design Policies, was established in to formulate and recommend highway engineering policies.

This Committee has developed A Policy on Geometric Design of Rural Highways, and editions; A Policy on Arterial Highways in Urban Areas, ; A Policy on Design of Urban Highways and.

For this course, AASHTO’s A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets (also known as the “Green Book”) will be used primarily for fundamental geometric design principles.

The chapter presents the traditional functional classifications for roadways (local roads and streets, collectors, arterials, and freeways), as well as a new set of context classifications (rural, rural town, suburban, urban, and urban core) to guide geometric design.

The chapter also. This fifth edition of AASHTO's "Green Book" contains the latest design practices in universal use as the standard for highway geometric design and has been updated to reflect the latest research on superelevation and side friction factors as presented in NCHRP Report /5(2).
