THE ROLE OF PLANNING IN HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION

HIGHWAY PLANNING IS STILL ONE OF THE LEAST UNDERSTOOD FUNCTIONS, HAS NO COMMON DEFINITION, NO UNIFORM INTERPRETATION OR UNDERSTANDING OF ITS PROCESSES, AND PRACTICE VARIES FROM STATE TO STATE. AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO DEFINE THE PLANNING FUNCTION AND ITS PROPER PLACE IN ADMINISTRATION, AND INDICATE THE REQUISITES OF AN ORGANIZATIONAL, CONCEPTUAL, AND OPERATIONAL NATURE FOR MORE EFFECTIVE HIGHWAY PLANNING. SOME OF THE PRACTICAL BENEFITS OF GOOD PLANNING ARE ALSO SET FORTH. /AUTHOR/
