Confusion still exists in the design community about the role of AASHTO’s Green Book. When you hear someone suggest that it’s law, refer them to A Guide for Achieving Flexibility in Highway Design…written by…[drum roll]…AASHTO.

The AASHTO Green Book is not intended, and never was intended, to be used solely as a standard upon which to base the design of every highway improvement.
