INTERCHANGE PROTECTION AND COMMUNITY STRUCTURE

A GENERAL FRAMEWORK OF RESEARCH FOR INTERCHANGE LOCATIONS IN RURAL AND SUBURBAN AREAS IS SET FORTH. THE FRAMEWORK INVOLVES THREE SEPARATE BUT RELATED FACETS' PREDICTION OF GROWTH, LAND-USE PLANNING FOR HIGHWAY PROTECTION, AND COMMUNITY STRUCTURE FAVORABLE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGHWAY PROTECTION PROGRAMS. MAJOR EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EMPIRICAL MODEL FOR LAND-USE PLANNING AT INTERCHANGES. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO EXPLAIN AND DEMONSTRATE THE INTERRELATIONS EXISTING AMONG LAND MANAGEMENT UNITS FOR PURPOSES OF HIGHWAY PROTECTION. THE MODEL ASSUMES HOMOGENEOUS LAND MANAGEMENT /RESIDENTIAL/ UNITS. ESSENTIALLY, THIS MODEL RECOGNIZES THAT LAND USE WILL ALTER BOTH THE PRACTICAL CAPACITY OF THE INTERCHANGE AND THE VOLUME OF TRAFFIC USING IT. THE MODEL MAY BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE OTHER TYPES OF LAND MANAGEMENT UNITS /E.G., COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL/, THEREBY MAKING IT MORE COMPREHENSIVE AND MORE GENERALLY APPLICABLE. IN THE LATTER STAGE, THE MODEL PROVIDES A GUIDE FOR LAND-USE PLANNING WHICH INDICATES HOW MANY AND WHAT NEW DEVELOPMENTS CAN BE ALLOWED TO LOCATE UNTIL SURPLUS CAPACITY IS UTILIZED. /AUTHOR/
