The benefits of access management are many. They include improved safety, reduced delay, better multimodal quality of service, and enhanced livability. These benefits can translate into economic value for transportation agencies and the public.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 1032: How to Measure and Communicate the Value of Access Management contains a guide for practitioners on use of an online Access Management CommunicationToolkit (AMC Toolkit) and is designed to help public agency staff and their consultants more easily understand, measure, and communicate the value of access management techniques when developing or implementing access management plans, programs, or projects.
Supplemental to the report are NCHRP Web-Only Document 339: Developing a Toolkit to Measure and Communicate the Value of Access Management, a Technical Memorandum Implementation Plan, a PowerPoint Presentation about the research, videos about the project and Toolkit, and a training guide for using the Toolkit.
