Research for the AASHTO Committee on Environment and Sustainability. Task 3. Assessment and Mitigation Strategies for Land Development Impacts of Transportation Improvements

Increasingly, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents for major transportation projects report that dispersed land development is likely to be a secondary impact. Dispersed development can contribute to serious environmental problems including, air and water degradation, habitat loss, and a decline in ecosystem functions. This study developed a handbook of techniques used to predict, control or mitigate land development impacts of transportation projects. Status is completed; final report (264 KB, 52 pp.) is available in Adobe PDF.
