CONCEPTS AND GUIDELINES FOR HIGHWAY AND LAND PLANNING IN NORTH CAROLINA

In 1970 and again in 1975 a survey was made of all land development at or near interchanges on North Carolina's Freeway system. Analyses of these developments were made to determine if they took place because of the construction of the highway (highway oriented). It was found that in suburban and urban areas that the predominant amount of traffic congestion at interchanges and/or crossing streets had taken place because these land developments were not anticipated in the planning of the highway. Many such developments such as shopping centers and major industries caused many interchanges to be reconstructed at great expense. This condensation of the results of these studies attempts to set forth a series of concepts and guidelines for both the professional planner and policy-making groups that should be helpful in estimating the amount and type of unanticipated land development that might take place because of the construction of a new highway.
