Corridors to the Future: Access Management and Web Technology
This session will explore how to use web technology, including the TRB AHB70 website www.accessmanagement.info to find more resources, and learn more about access management. You will find out what's available now, and what we hope our future will bring. This interactive session will include opportunities for participants to provide feedback how we can work together to make our website better.
Research on Driving Safety of Urban Interchange Ramp under Crosswind
A Study of the Opening Size of Auxiliary Lanes on the Driving Behavior-based analysis
The Development of Access Management Guidelines for the Western Cape Government, South Africa
A Compendium Survey of International Access Management Practices and Concepts
Access Program Framework
Internationally, an access management program framework will vary by type of government, culture and established preferences in roadway design and traffic engineering. Mr. Demosthenes will use personal experiences from the USA, Greece, and Dubai and Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates (U.AE.) to present and discuss some universal access management issues and principles for agency programs.

Fourth National Conference on Access Management
August 13-16, 2000
The 1998 National Conference on Access Management, held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, from October 4 to October 7, 1998, was sponsored by the Transportation Research Boards Committee on Access Management and the Federal Highway Administration Office of Technology Applications. The Florida Department of Transportation hosted the Conference.
A Compendium of Papers from the 2nd National Conference on Access Management
Held In Vail, Colorado
August 1 - 14, 1996
Conference Proceedings The 7th Conference on Access Management was held in Park City, Utah on August 13th to 16th, 2006. This website and Access Management DVD Library 2007 contain most of the presentations from the conference. The conference proceedings are posted on the http://teachamerica.com/accessmanagement.info/2006conference.html . The session topics were chosen to match the Chapters in the TRB Access Management Manual.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether acquiring additional limited access right-of-way (ROW) at the time an interchange is built and before the surrounding area is subdivided and developed, is in fact cost effective in light of potential costs and benefits. The study methodology included the following: (1) traffic operations analysis of the interchange with varying configurations of signalized access spacing, (2) safety analysis of interchanges with varied access spacing in Florida, and (3) a cost/benefit analysis of acquiring varying amounts of limited access ROW.
This paper discusses how access management techniques have impacted Value Engineering (VE) studies. The following three topics are described and discussed using results from actual VE studies: Diamond interchange footprint; Urban widening (retrofit with median strip); and Left turn lanes on a rural arterial.
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is conducting a group of studies to determine how to improve 200 miles of Interstate 70 between St. Louis and Kansas City. Addressing access within the functional boundary of interchanges is a key element of the project. The paper first briefly reviews I-70 decision making studies and MoDOT's access management guidelines. Attention is then focused on access management and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has begun experimenting with new combinations of tools aimed at addressing transportation problems within their community context. The most extensive and deliberate use of these tools is corridor planning. Corridor planning is an approach that is rooted in collaboration with local communities to address all the issues of context that are beyond the purview of the state transportation agency.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has utilized several microsimulation software packages to analyze the impacts of proposed designs, such as interchange footprint and outer road spacing. Traditionally, one of the most difficult aspects of a project has been providing a clear understanding of the final product to the public. This paper discusses the use of visual simulation models to convey access management techniques to the general public.
Sixth National Conference on Access Management, August 29-September 1, 2004, Kansas City, Missouri
The process involved the development of a corridor economic profile, a business inventory and classification study to determine the businesses most likely to be impacted by access changes, a set of detailed business interviews, a business forum, and a business-oriented design charette.
