FREEWAY CORRIDOR PLANNING - ABRIDGMENT

FREEWAY CORRIDOR PLANNING IS IDENTIFIED AS A MEANS FOR ACHIEVING INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION AND LAND-USE DEVELOP- MENT. SIX DIFFERENT KINDS OF CORRIDOR PLANNING ARE DISCUSSED, AND EACH MAY BE APPLIED AS A BASIC TECHNIQUE FOR COORDINATING FREEWAYS WITH ADJACENT LAND USE. A GENERAL PLANNING PROCEDURE FOR JOINT DEVELOPMENT WITHIN FREEWAY CORRIDORS IS OUTLINED. RECREATION CORRIDORS ARE CONCERNED MAINLY WITH THE COORDINATED DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL PARKS AND INTER URBAN FREEWAYS. INTEGRATED URBAN CORRIDORS FOCUS ON THE NEED TO DESIGN URBAN FREEWAYS IN FULL COORDINATION WITH MULTIPLE-PURPOSE ADJACENT LAND USE, OFTEN INVOLVING THE MULTIPLE USE OF RIGHTS-OF-WAY. APPROPRIATE JOINT DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS ARE DESCRIBED. COORDINATED TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS ARE CONCERNED WITH THE ACCOMPANYING PROVISION OF NEEDED TRANSIT AND PARKING FACILITIES, INCLUDING EXCLUSIVE TRANSIT LANES FOR RAIL OR BUS, SPECIAL TURN-OUTS OR PASSENGER STOPS FOR EXPRESS BUS OPERATIONS, AND INTERCHANGE PARKING FACILITIES FOR CAR POOLING AND TRANSIT PARK-AND-RIDE. INTERAGENCY COOPERATION AND PLANNING NEEDS ARE DISCUSSED FOR A CORRIDOR PLANNING JOINT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.
