COORDINATED FREEWAY-PARK DEVELOPMENTS

THE COORDINATION IS RECOMMENDED OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT AND FREEWAY LOCATION WITH MAJOR PARK DEVELOPMENT, INVOLVING BOTH THE MULTIPLE USE OF HIGHWAY RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR PARK PURPOSES AND THE PROVISION OF DIRECT RAMP ACCESS TO RECREATIONAL FACILITIES, REPRESENTING A PROMISING AREA FOR FUTURE PUBLIC PLANNING ACTIVITY. TWO HUNDRED FIFTY MILES OF CONTROLLED ACCESS PARKWAY IN THE NEW YORK AREA HAVE BEEN WELL ARTICULATED AS AN INTERCONNECTED NETWORK OF SOME TWENTY-ONE ROUTES. THE TWO MAJOR DEVELOPMENT FACTORS ARE INCREASED ACCESSIBILITY AND REQUIRED LAND AREA. THE COORDINATION OF CONTINUOUS, COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING RAISES A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT QUESTIONS FOR FUTURE FREEWAY-RECREATION COORDINATION: (1) RESPONSIBILITIES FOR URBAN RECREATION, (2) COORDINATED DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUES, (3) ADVANCE LAND ACQUISITION NEEDS, AND (4) WEEKEND TRAVEL PATTERNS. EACH OF THESE TOPICS ARE THOROUGHLY ANALYZED.
