The authors of this paper are currently investigating the development of access management programs in various states. This investigation is part of a research project to determine the legislative and regulatory requirements for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to develop and adopt a comprehensive access management program. Researchers have interviewed officials from state DOTs in Colorado, Montana, Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan, and Wisconsin regarding their access management programs and other related practices, with particular interest in their development and implementation. This paper provides an overview of current access management programs in various states, explaining "lessons learned" during the development and implementation of the programs. Examples of the lessons learned include hiring a large enough staff dedicated to the program, creating a separate bureau/department/division for access management, and including a process to handle waivers. Specific recommendations from state DOT officials are also presented. This paper and presentation will be useful to states, provinces, and cities that are interested in developing or amending an access management program.
