VDOT employees who see something like this can probably get to the document, but it may be a longer route than what they are used to.

TRB has transitioned many of online publications to a new  format through the National Academies Press (NAP). It is a slightly different user experience from the past, but publications like this are still available for free online viewing to VDOT employees/TRB sponsors.

To read this item online, you have two options: 

1. From this page: look for and click on the "Read Online" button in the upper right corner. The document will open in an "on screen" pdf viewer:

.NAP Read Online

2. Or, from this page: look for the button "Buy from" and click on it.  That button looks like this:

NAP Buy from button

That will take you to this "blurb" page where you can click on the blue "View this pdf" button. When you do you will see this new screen allowing you to "Download as a guest:

NAP download as guess screen

Note that I have entered my VDOT email address (important, it must be your VDOT e-mail!) and accepted the terms of use.  Click "Continue" and you can download a pdf of the publication to your computer. 

If you ever want to recommend the library purchase a hard copy of such a publication (as opposed to simply viewing the pdf online) please use this online form: VDOT employees only please!
