TRANSPORTATION FACILITY PROXIMITY IMPACT ASSESSMENT

This study provides techniques for the assessment of proximity impacts related to transportation facilities. The examination of proximity impacts included those related to highways and freeways, busways, and special operational improvements, transit, and new modes of transit. Proximity impacts are those direct and indirect effects which represent a significant change from existing or future community conditions. A two-stage evaluation was developed for the assessment of the following impact indicators: noise, air quality, traffic volume and accident experience, parking availability, pedestrian safety, land use, local fiscal effects, aesthetics, access/barrier, and neighborhood/community disruption. The report also includes an illustrative application of the assessment procedures to a candidate transportation project.
