Establishing a Local Corridor Preservation Program: Insights from Florida

Corridor preservation involves the coordinated application of measures to prevent or minimize development within the right-of-way of a planned transportation facility, as well as access management measures to preserve the safety and efficiency of roadways. Such measures enable government agencies to provide a transportation system that will serve existing and future development within a local community, region or state. Effective corridor preservation provides numerous benefits to communities, taxpayers and the public at large. Yet most communities lack a systematic program for preserving right-of-way and managing access. In addition, a variety of legal and practical questions continue to surround corridor preservation practices. This paper explores right-of-way preservation issues and practices in Florida, right-of-way preservation and access management strategies, and techniques for addressing legal and property rights concerns.
