TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 855: An Expanded Functional Classification System for Highways and Streets. This report builds upon preliminary engineering of a design project, including developing the purpose and need. In particular, it provides additional contexts beyond urban and rural, facilitates accommodation of modes other than personal vehicles and adds overlays for transit and freight.

Click here if you liked this information

TRB E-Circular 214: International Practice in Highway Access Management: A Primer explores the international status of access management through the use of a survey of transportation researchers or professionals from eight countries to document their understanding of access management practices in their country. Authors of each country report were asked to focus on critical issues of the concept and provide specific information (if existing) with regard to historical background; legal framework; roadway function; access control schemes; land use and development regulation; enforcement schem

FHWA/Safety/Intersection/Intersection Safety

Imagine a multilane urban/suburban roadway where traffic is heavy, yet moves well; accommodates drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists; allows easy entry to and exit from businesses and other destinations; and has fewer crashes and other conflicts. Chances are this road is benefitting from corridor access management, a strategy that seeks an appropriate balance between the safety and mobility of a roadway facility with the access needs of adjacent land uses.

Design of Right Turn Lanes

This paper provides an expansion and explanation of the presentation of the "Design of Right-Turn Lanes" presented in Session 619 of the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board. The paper addresses the operational issues and the design of right-turn lanes. As indicated in the paper, many issues relating to right-turn lanes are the same as for left-turn lanes. Deceleration rates reported in NCHRP Report 780 for left-turns are reasonably consistent with those previously assumed. The rationale for taper length as opposed to taper ratio is discussed.

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.
