Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 52-15. Measuring Investments and Benefits of Active Transportation Investments When Accomplished as Part of Other Roadway Projects

The objective of this synthesis is to document the methods that DOTs are currently using to track and record their investments in active transportation infrastructure when accomplished as part of other projects. Information gathered should include (but is not limited to): (1) Methods of DOT tracking and recording of active transportation project investments (2) Reasons state DOTs track investments (e.g. for reporting requirements, in response to citizens and legislative requests, performance measure attainment, to quantify the impact on communities, long-term mode shifts, commutes, and public health) (3) Challenges DOTs face in tracking and recording investments (4) Identifying gaps in knowledge and research Information will be collected through literature review, a survey of DOTs, and follow-up interviews with selected agencies for the development of case examples. Information gaps and suggestions for research to address those gaps will be identified.
