Access Rights

This synthesis will be of interest to state transportation agency personnel, as well as to others who are involved in acquiring access rights along roadways other than freeways. This report documents the state of the practice with the intent to limit the amount of access to the roadway for the purpose of managing highway safety and mobility. Successful practices are documented along with current policies, legal and real estate literature, and other publications that address this subject. The findings focus on the three main areas of acquisition, management, and disposal. Lessons learned and information gaps are also explored. This synthesis of the Transportation Research Board contains information culled from the responses to a survey questionnaire of 32 state transportation agencies, supplemented by the material collected as part of a literature review. Personal interviews were also conducted to provide specific case studies that demonstrate the issues facing practitioners today.
