A highway reconstruction project is being undertaken to reduce crash rates. The reconstruction involves a major realignment of the highway such that a 60 mi/h design speed is attained. At one point on the highway, an 800 ft equal-tangent crest vertical curve exists. Measurements show that at 3+52 stations from the PVC, the vertical curve offset is 3 ft. Assess the adequacy of this existing curve in light of the reconstruction design speed of 60 mi/h and, if the existing curve is inadequate, compute a satisfactory curve length.
