LAND USE DEVELOPMENT AT INTERSTATE INTERCHANGES IN INDIANA

THE PROJECT REPORTS THE EXTENT OF LAND USE DEVELOPMENT, LAND USE CHANGE, AND LAND USE CONTROL AT INTERSTATE INTERCHANGES OPEN TO TRAFFIC FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS. RESULTS OF THE INVENTORIES AND THE AGGREGATE LAND USE DEVELOPMENT MAGNITUDE MODEL SHOULD ENABLE HIGHWAY PLANNERS TO PINPOINT EXISTING AREAS REQUIRING IMMEDIATE COMPREHENSIVE INTERCHANGE LAND USE PLANNING, AND TO REFER TO TYPICAL DEVELOPMENT TRENDS IN PLANNING FOR NEW INTERCHANGES ALONG LIMITED ACCESS ROADWAYS. DATA WAS GATHERED FROM STATE DEPARTMENTS AND FROM IN-FIELD INTERVIEWING SURVEYS. ROAD USER SERVICES WERE FOUND TO CONSTITUTE THE BULK OF EARLY POST INTERCHANGE OPENING DEVELOPMENT. RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL LAND USES, WHILE INCREASING IN AREA COVERAGE AS THE NEARBY URBAN CENTER SIZE INCREASES, OCCURRED BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER INTERSTATE OPENING DEPENDING ON THE EXTENT OF URBAN GROWTH OUT TO THE INTERSTATE AND INTERCHANGES WHEN FIRST OPENED. LAND USE CONTROL WAS FOUND TO BE VIRTUALLY NONEXISTENT. HOWEVER, THE PORTIONS OF THE INTERCHANGE AREA WHICH WERE PLANNED AND CONTROLLED WERE ACCUMULATED IN A LAND USE CONTROL LISTING WHOSE REALISTIC APPLICATION IS DEMONSTRATED IN A SAMPLE OF HOW AN EXISTING INTERCHANGE AREA MIGHT BE DEVELOPED FOR THE BENEFIT OF USERS, DEVELOPERS AND PLANNERS IF PLANNING THROUGH LAND USE CONTROL PACKAGE IS EFFECTIVELY IMPLEMENTED. PAST RESEARCH IN THIS AREA IS REVIEWED AND THE CONCEPTUAL BASIS OF THE STUDY IS DETAILED. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES ARE DESCRIBED AND TEN INTERCHANGE CASE STUDIES ARE PRESENTED. AREAS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH ARE INDICATED.
