THE CASE FOR HIGHWAY PLANNING

HIGHWAY HISTORY IS BRIEFLY DISCUSSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF SHOWING THAT THE PLANNING PROCESS IS INTRICATELY RELATED. AT THE PRESENT TIME WITHIN DOT, AN INTERMODAL COORDINATING ARRANGEMENT EXISTS FOR COORDINATING PLANNING PROGRAMS AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL. IM 50-3-71 ISSUED BY DOT REQUIRES THAT THE PLANNING ORGANIZATION, THE AREA-WIDE POLICY BOARD, AND THE PLANNING PROCESS BE INDIVIDUALLY CERTIFIED ANNUALLY BEFORE ANY FEDERAL-AID HIGHWAY PROJECTS ARE APPROVED. THE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE ESTABLISHED BY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S JOHN A. VOLPE IS FOR EXAMINING THE FHWA PROCEDURES AND PRACTICES IN THE AREA OF CITIZEN INVOLVEMENT. THE ROLE OF THE 1970 HIGHWAY ACT IS REVIEWED, PARTICULARLY THE PART THAT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS A COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING PROCESS.
