Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. Task 86. Corridor Approaches to Integrating Land Transportation and Land Use

The purpose of this project is to prepare case studies in integrated transportation corridor and land use planning. These case studies would document goals, management strategies, institutional arrangements, tools and land use development approaches that can be used by communities to achieve integrated transportation and land use for more sustainable communities. Case studies will focus on projects that seek to balance the needs of the automobile and freight with those of walkers, bike riders and transit riders to result in livable neighborhoods and mixed use centers linked by transportation infrastructure that provides the mobility of goods and people needed for healthy economies. The case studies will encompass a range of approaches to integrating transportation and land use along transportation corridors. The consultant will survey the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning and the TRB Statewide Planning committee for suggested case study locations. Case Studies could illustrate integrated transportation and land use projects such as Integrated transportation and land use planning as a state DOT statewide strategy. Corridor design and development integrating pricing and/or ITS with regional transit and land use plans. New Community Mixed Use Development integrating highway, public transit, high density mixed use development and integration with existing regional transportation infrastructure. Lowering Capacity to reduce congestion in conjunction with community transformation through new land use and economic development. Additional approaches and case studies determined by the research study panel. Representatives from the case study communities will meet to compare experiences with integrating land use and transportation. These comparisons will be included in the final report to add "the rest of the story".
