RAILROADS IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT

JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE ARE DISCUSSED AS APPLICABLE TO ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION. RAILROADS HAVE BEEN IN THE MULTIPLE-USE BUSINESS FOR MORE THAN HALF A CENTURY. RAILROADS HAVE A KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT THAT THEY COULD SHARE WITH HIGHWAY AND OTHER MASS TRANSIT INTERESTS. COOPERATIVE PLANNING IS NEEDED BY ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION IN THE LOCATION OF NEW FACILITIES. WITH THE GROWING SHORTAGE OF INDUSTRIAL SITES, IT IS IMPORTANT TO AVOID LOSING SUCH POTENTIAL SITES BY CUTTING OFF RAIL ACCESS SERVICE IN LOCATING A HIGHWAY OR TRANSIT FACILITY. AIR RIGHTS OVER RAILROAD YARDS AND OTHER FACILITIES ARE DISCUSSED FROM THE MULTIPLE-USE ASPECT.
