Highway Corridor Preservation: A Synthesis of Practice
Michael A. Perfater
Year: 1989
VTRC No.: 90-TA1
Abstract: This report examines the general concept of planning for and protecting land designated to serve as new highway corridors in developing areas. It generally presents a review of the state of the practice by describing several methods for protecting potential highway corridors, some of which may be implemented immediately and some of which would require legislative or regulatory changes at either the federal, state, or local level. The report also presents a prospectus for future activities at the federal level regarding corridor preservation.
