Quantifying the Impacts of Corridor Management

The objective of this research is to evaluate and, where possible, quantify the impacts of corridor management. As is evident from the literature review, there is often little or no follow up from the step of implementing corridor management to the point of quantifiably measuring the impact that such techniques have on the businesses, travelers, land values, and the long-term sustainability of a corridor. This project will assemble and develop comparative data—both quantitative and qualitative—for corridor management components and attributes such as access density, median usage, signal spacing, crash rates, development connectivity, value of improvements, business stability, land values, and aesthetics. Obtaining these types of data will require data collection specific to selected corridors. Some of the data may already be available or collected by government agencies; other parts of data will require detailed research of historic records and conditions and interviews with local planners and engineers.
