Over ten years ago I began writing “Highway Doctor” articles for an in-house highway department newsletter. The purpose of these articles was to teach my staff different aspects of our highway infrastructure that were outside their area of responsibility and expertise. Over and over I have been complimented on these articles - not only because of the goofy names of the writers - but for the informative explanations provided. I have been repeatedly urged to get these articles published for a broader audience, so here it is! I hope you enjoy the articles, and as The Highway Doctor is famous for saying, "To health on the highways!"
The Highway Doctor is the alter-ego of Doug Fischer, a civil engineer who has been in the transportation industry for over 25 years. See more info in the "Contacts/About" page.
