THE INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH IN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND DESIGN

This session presented the experience of five state transportation agencies in the use of the interdisciplinary team approach in project planning and design. The speakers described how their states organized their staffs to assure a desired relationship between the various disciplines, the mix of disciplines considered most helpful, means set-up to compromise differences in viewpoints, problems encountered in the use of such an approach, and ways such problems may be solved. In addition, the speakers brought out the lessons that have been learned in the use of an interdisciplinary approach by their states. These lessons should be of value to other states interested in an interdisciplinary approach to transportation planning and design. /Author/
