INVESTIGATION OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS OF WAY AND THEIR DIRECTLY RELATED LAND USE

The report proposes a methodology for evaluating the relationship of existing rights-of-way and their adjacent land uses. Primary steps include attempts at classification of typical public rights-of-way by type, adjacent land uses, and special features of urban landscape. The question initially confronted was; what makes one right-of-way different from another. Shadow determinance charts are presented. Right-of-way perspective is examined from vista view, traffic flow, right-of-way pattern, speed limit aspects. Adjacent land use discussion includes parking status, pedestrian traffic, access to right-of-way, road surface and traffic land constraints. Land use map and zoning map included, as well as traffic flow constraints. Authors conclude that systematic method of collecting and comparing data can be useful in defining type and character of right-of-way.
