This course introduces students to transportation planning, and parking studies. The course exposes the students to the study of traffic engineering. This involves having an understanding of highway traffic characteristics, being able to design and determine the capacity of intersections while having an appreciation of engineering economics. The course also allows students to understand how to Determine the route location for highways, how to execute highway geometric designs, rigid and flexible pavement designs, highway drainage designs, while having an appreciation of the selection of suitable pavement materials, quality control, pavement maintenance management and the potential environmental impacts of transportation projects.
