THE RESULTS OF A 1970 AND 1975 ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF LAND DEVELOPMENTS ON FREEWAYS IN NORTH CAROLINA

Publications ERSD 70-4 and 71-4 were concerned with an analysis of the impact of freeways upon land development in North Carolina. The results and analyses were based upon a field inventory conducted in 1970 along with special studies in urban areas conducted in 1970 and 1972. Many of the interstate freeways were not open to traffic in 1970 and some had only been opened a short time. Therefore, it was determined to conduct another inventory in 1975 in order to analyze land developments on the new routes and to determine the increase in highway oriented land developments on those routes studied in 1970. This report summarizes these findings and makes suggestions concerning those freeways and their particular interchanges that will attract additional land development to the point that congestion may require the reconstruction of the interchange unless steps are taken to prepare for the additional land development. Additionally, a manual of guidelines for relating land development and freeway impact has been prepared entitled "Concepts and Guidelines for Highway and Land Planning in North Carolina."
