Support for AASHTO Committees and Councils. An Integrated Roadmap Approach to Multimodal Facility Selection for Delivering Transportation Projects

Existing and ongoing AASHTO publications have a tremendous amount of information that highway practitioners need to consider making multimodal decisions. As a practitioner, the first step in the process of determining how to plan, design and ultimately operate a highway corridor is to determine the target users, target speeds, context, and the type of facilities needed in what is typically a constrained space. Currently, the way to do that is to use multiple manuals to identify those items for a particular mode. While the cumulative effect of these guides can lead to facility selection that addresses the needs of all users; it is an inefficient way to inform the decision-makers about these selections. Additionally, due to the timing of the various publications, often the information can be duplicative or contradicting from one to another. The objective of this project is to review AASHTO publications and resolutions, explore current USDOT requirements and recommendations, develop a consolidated AASTHO publication structure that removes silos, addresses priorities, and create an integrated roadmap approach for motorized and active transportation facility selection for highway corridors.
