Highway Construction Insurance

There are a number of elements that make up a successful highway design. These include the size of the highway, the number of lanes, the median type, the width of the shoulder, overpasses, and the affiliated landscape. These are all important decisions that must be made to create a functional and attractive highway. The costs involved in building a new interstate highway have increased significantly since the 1960s, but have been largely unaffected by inflation.

The Roads and Bridges Media website covers all aspects of highway construction. Topics included are road design, concrete and asphalt paving, diamond grinding, earthmoving, soil stabilization, state of repair, and department of transportation cooperation. In addition, there are articles covering new developments in the industry. All of these topics are of concern to construction businesses. And because highways affect many aspects of society, it is important to make sure that the projects are completed safely.

The stages of highway construction may vary from state to state, but there are five basic phases: planning, project development, final design, right of way, and construction. Despite the fact that each stage requires a unique set of skills and training, the process has a common thread. In the planning stage, a problem or need is identified. This is done on the state or regional level, where public input is sought. During the planning stage, the public is given the opportunity to express their opinion.
