Best Practices in Smart Growth and Transportation 2004 Competition

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO's) Center for Environmental Excellence, in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), sponsored the 2004 Best Practices in Smart Growth and Transportation Competition to showcase outstanding examples of the work being done across the United States to successfully integrate smart growth principles with the planning and delivery of transportation projects, programs, and services. This report recognizes the overall winner from each of the three categories - best project, best program, and best in institutional change. The winners and notable practices are grouped according to two themes emerging across the United States: (1) revitalization of communities and corridors on a project or regional level; and (2) development of broad, statewide, smart growth strategies for integration of transportation and land use. Use of transit oriented development, bicycle paths, traffic safety and land use projects are noted in the report.
