May 10, 2012 Access management is the careful planning, regulation, and design of access between roadways and land development. Through access management, local governments can help preserve the ability of area roadways to move people and goods safely and efficiently, while advancing economic development and livability goals. Effective access management involves the adoption of plans and policies governing roadway and development access, linking these policies to roadway and site design, and instituting codes and procedures to enforce agency decisions. Strategies are also needed to coordinate access management actions among land use and transportation agencies. Although state transportation agencies often lead the way on access management, local governments have broad authority to engage in access management through their planning and regulatory powers. This webcast addresses access management best practices for local governments, including land use planning strategies, regulatory techniques, service roads and street network strategies, cooperative agreements, and mitigation requirements.
