State Arterial Highway System Peer City Study

Addressing state highways within urban areas is a challenge for New York State, New York City and Buffalo. Drawing upon experiences from around the United States, this report explores how specific issue areas – maintenance responsibilities, planning & programming, design & construction, traffic signals, funding, enforcement, and transfers of title & ownership – are addressed in other cities and states. A great deal of variation exists among these city/state pairs. However, there are several notable practices (and potentially precedent) identified that are relevant for New York State and the cities of New York and Buffalo should the cities and state seek to better coordinate their efforts or state highways and/or rationalize the existing state arterial highway system. To aid in implementation of the findings, the research results shall be provided to the Policy & Strategy Division at the New York State Department of Transportation for use in discussions furthering the concept of corridor management within urban areas.
