Highway Snowstorm Countermeasure Manual: Abridged Edition


This report is a synopsis of the Highway Snowstorm Countermeasure Manual revised in July 2003. The manual explains basic ideas and describes technical data and general technological standards related to snow-control facilities used against snowdrifts and blowing snow induced visibility hindrance. The revised manual includes a new volume, the General Guide, for snow-control measures, in addition to existing volumes on snowbreak woods and snow fences.
