Highway

Added by: Admin


A highway is any public or private road or other public way on land. It is used for major roads, but also includes other public roads and public tracks: It is not an equivalent term to controlled-access highway, or a translation for autobahn, autoroute, etc.

According to Merriam Webster, the use of the term predates the 12th century. According to Etymonline, "high" is in the sense of "main". In North American and Australian English, major roads such as controlled-access highways or arterial roads are often state highways.

Major highways are often named and numbered by the governments that typically develop and maintain them. The A1 highway is a highway in Nigeria. It connects Lagos in the south to the border with the Republic of Niger in the north of the country, connecting with the N1 highway of Niger at Birnin Konni. The A1 constitutes the Nigerian section of the Trans-Sahara Highway from Algiers, and is the westernmost of the four main south-north highways of the country.
There are numerous publications, journals, articles and books on Highway. To learn more, kindly visit www.ascelibrary.org or www.asce.org/publications.
