ASSESSMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL AESTHETICS IN SCENIC HIGHWAY CORRIDORS

Independent groups viewed either an existing designated California highway scenic corridor, a sympathetically modified version consisting of minimum human intrusion, or a more unsympathetic version of the present corridor reflecting greater human intrusion. The introduction of sympathetic or more urbanized development along the scenic roadway reduced overall scenic quality. The development and validation of a suitable, kinetic simulation technique for use in the evaluation of roadside environments is also presented. (Author/TRRL)
