intended use of the AASHTO green book

Posted on January 26, 2012


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.
