NCDOT School Impact Calculator http://www.ncdot.org/doh/preconstruct/traffic/congestion/CM/MSTA/schools.html
NCDOT developed a school impact calculator to help new schools and their consultants determine traffic impacts and how to handle potential traffic on site. The Department also provides technical assistance to schools to ensure appropriate access and circulation design for autos, bicycles and pedestrians.

Huntington Traffic Solutions. Access Management Stakeholder Report: Responding to Senate Bill 1024, Oregon Department of Transportation, Salem, Oregon (2011).
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) is responsible
for one of the largest state-jurisdiction road systems in the United
States. Missouri has recently decided to embark on an access
management program and has focused on utilizing access management
mainly to meet safety, traffic operations, and economic development
goals. The Missouri Access Management program development process
involves a number of key steps. These include:
This report represents Kentuckys continued efforts to institute a state-wide access management policy, as set forth in the 2004-2008 Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Joint Strategic Plan. The suggestions made herein build upon the initial recommendations laid out in Access Management for Kentucky (which had also included an access management implementation plan).
This paper provides an overview of current access management programs in various states, and is one of few uncovered that focus on lessons learned during the development and implementation of the programs. Although few specific details are provided, it does include general suggestions that may be useful for the chapter on state program development. Examples of the lessons learned include hiring a large enough staff dedicated to the program, creating a separate bureau/ department/division for access management, and including a process to handle waivers.

Chapter 13 of this Handbook, Access Management, was authored by Philip Demosthenes and Vergil G. Stover. Chapter 13 includes an introduction to access management providing an historical perspective, a review of legal issues of interest to traffic engineers, and proceeds to present current practice in policies, programs and access related design elements.

This article provides practical guidance on developing and implementing an access management program. It includes guidance relative to access classification systems, access design practices, variances and corridor access management plans. It will be especially useful in the chapters on access classification systems and state program development.
