This research investigates the interaction between road section design and adjacent site design with the goal of pairing roadway design criteria (in terms of the maximum number of lanes and design speed) with urban design criteria (in terms of levels of activity, location of access, and relation to street). The research hypothesizes that a minimum of three arterial roadway prototypes is needed to serve travel demands and that there are three types of activity levels in suburban communities.
