TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 737: Design Guidance for High-Speed to Low-Speed Transitions Zones for Rural Highways presents guidance for designing the transition from a high-speed rural highway to a lower-speed section, typically approaching a small town.
The report includes a methodology for assessing these highway sections and a catalog of potential treatments for addressing problems.
