Brief history of the polytechnic, scope of the project alongside the aims and objectives with purpose of the project was also enumerated. Literature on history of road development, highway development in Nigeria was reviewed. Classification of highway was listed and importance of road network was also enumerated. Methodology that look at road design from the point of view that’s reconnaissance survey, mission planning are categorized under work and then laboratory work to test soil sample collected in the field for the purpose of pavement design were fully discussed. So also, road alignment and drainage design were also discussed. All data collected were presented, analyzed and perfectly design which include readings from the instrument used. The reduced level on vertical curve was computed and drawings on A3 drawing sheets were produced. Pavement and drainage channel were designed and all necessary tables and charts were included.
