NCHRP Implementation Support Program. Implementation Project to Measure and Communicate the Value of Access Management

Effective ingress and egress management along highways and major arterial roads are essential for minimizing road-user conflicts. Closely spaced driveways, median openings across turn lanes, and driveways near major intersections are examples of poorly designed access features that contribute to unsafe, unsightly, and congested roadways. Access management techniques—used to minimize potential conflict points—help reduce crashes, preserve roadway capacity, improve corridor aesthetics, and reduce congestion. Well-managed transportation corridors also benefit from more stable property values, less delay to freight movers and the commuting public, and better market reach for retail businesses.  NCHRP Research Report 1032: How to Measure and Communicate the Value of Access Management contains a guide for practitioners on use of an online Access Management Communication Toolkit (AMC Toolkit) and is designed to help public agency staff and their consultants more easily understand, measure, and communicate the value of access management techniques when developing or implementing access management plans, programs, or projects. Although the Toolkit and its supporting materials are designed to be readily applied by practitioners, an initial training effort is required to provide a strong foundation for ongoing implementation.
