TRB Access Management AHB70

Increasing the awareness and use of Access Management

Evaluating Alternative Operations Strategies to Improve Travel Time Reliability


The following PREPUBLICATION DRAFT 2012  report is now out.  (http://www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/168142.aspx)

Among several strategies, access management is mentioned. So when explaining the usefulness of access management within your agency or to the public, consider mentioning this TRB – SHRP 2 report. (Strategic Highway Research Program).  I think the important issue here is that SHRP is linking reliability to access management. While we (friends of access management) have certainly linked system preservation to AM, it is always good when other peer reviewed reports do the same.

The research and report was “sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration in cooperation with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. It was conducted in the second Strategic Highway Research Program, which is administered by the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies. The project that is the subject of this document was a part of the second Strategic Highway Research Program, conducted by the Transportation Research Board with the approval of the Governing Board of the National Research Council.
