erformance Performance What are the primary functions of the design? What must it do? Move large volumes of traffic efficiently? rovide a large amount of power at peak hours? Provide a large amount of power at peak hours? Reduce vehicle delay at intersections? Carry large floor loads? Withstand high winds? Span valleys of great width and depth? Carry large volumes of water flow?
