Access Management

When: Thursday, August 20, 2020 -- 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

This webinar was developed by the ITE Traffic Engineering Council

Webinar Description:

This webinar is a continuation in the series of Traffic Engineering Handbook's chapter related webinars.
The purposes of access management are twofold:

1. To provide vehicular access to land development along major roadways in a manner that preserves the safe and efficient movement of people and goods
2. To enhance local mobility through network and site circulation planning best practices and attention to intermodal connectivity within urban cores, activity centers, and neighborhoods.

Experience has shown that what constitutes effective access management varies by roadway classification, land use context, and the sociocultural or institutional characteristics of the area where it is practiced. For this reason, no single set of guidelines or "ideal" process can be readily defined for all situations.

The webinar will review the basic principles and documented benefits of access management, and provide an overview of contemporary professional practice, including compatibility with multimodal objectives, programmatic guidelines, policies, and regulations, and public involvement.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of access management
  • Learn access management strategies to reduce congestion and delay on major roadways, while enhancing mobility within and between urban areas
  • Apply access management strategies to improve safety in roadway design and operation, through traffic conflict management
