Successful Approaches to Accommodate Additional Modes and Services in Existing Right-of-Way

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 19:00

FHWA's HEPH participated in NCHRP's Domestic Scan of design, operation, and policy decisions SDOTs face when considering accommodating additional modes and services within existing rights-of-way. The scan team visited seven geographically-dispersed projects and utilized a variety of multimodal transportation strategies benefitting bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and automobile users. Scanned projects included existing general-purpose traffic lanes converted to transit-only service (e.g., bus or rail), or to express toll lanes with bus rapid transit (BRT), or express bus service. The report, Successful Approaches to Accommodate Additional Modes and Services in Existing Right-of-Way, includes findings and recommendations that will advance the institutional capacity of SDOTs to successfully participate and partner in projects that add modes to existing rights-of-way.  The full NCHRP project report is available at http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/nchrp/docs/NCHRP20-68_17-02(Updated).pdf
