Question about road and highway architecture and aesthetics

Hello,
I am a student at civil engineering and my graduation project is about road and highway architecture and aesthetics. I would like you to suggest me books or similar projects about this subject.
Thanks in advance

Hi fridim, welcome to SSC

I'm going to move this thread to the Highways Forum, I'm sure you will get more help there.

States like Arizona, Texas and New Mexico often put a great deal of work in aesthetics, especially of interchanges.

A bit off the beaten track is the Marsha Sharp Freeway in Lubbock, Texas:
