Research for the AASHTO Committee on Environment and Sustainability. Task 2. Transportation Impacts and 'Smart Growth' Initiatives

Several states have had smart growth initiatives in place for a number of years at a statewide level to facilitate more coordinated development of transportation and land use. This study will determine if land use patterns have changed, if transportation decisions have changed, if vehicle miles traveled (VMT) increases have been reduced and if the impacts on the environment have been reduced. Status is completed; final report (3,700 KB, 265 pp.) is available in Adobe PDF.
