Compendium of Best and Innovative Methods and Tools for Transportation Planning and Project Development Analyses
Environmental Considerations in Planning
Research Idea Scope
New and improved transportation planning and project development analyses methods and tools are constantly being invented, tested and used by the multitude of public and private sector transportation and other organizations in the
Keeping abreast of the latest developments in transportation planning and project development methods and tools is no small undertaking for the transportation professional.
In June 2006, the National Cooperative Research Program (NCHRP) completed Research Project 25-22(02), “Technologies to Improve Consideration of Environmental Concerns in Transportation Decisions.” The research digest and CD showcases eight technologies to improve the consideration of environmental concerns in transportation decisions. Over 70 technologies in use by transportation agencies were evaluated. This effort began in 1999 and focused only on the environmental concerns in transportation decision-making.
Research to synthesize a compendium of the best and innovative methods and tools for transportation planning and project development is urgently needed. There is a need to go well beyond the environmental focus of NCHRP 25-22(2).
Develop a compendium of the best and innovative methods and tools for transportation planning and project development analyses.
