This synthesis report will be of interest to department of transportation administrators and transportation planning, right-of-way, economic development, and environmental planning staffs, as well as to the consultants that work with them. It would also appeal to regional and local government officials and staff, as well as to the private sector. It summarizes information about corridor management policies and programs at the federal, state, and local levels. An effort was made to select a diversity of methods and programs for the broadest treatment of the subject. The synthesis focuses more on roadway corridors than on transit or greenway corridors, but much of the information provided is relevant to any corridor management effort. This report examines state policies and programs, techniques applied, and coordination issues. A series of case studies provides more detailed study. This report of the Transportation Research Board documents successful partnerships. It presents examples of transportation agencies working together, proactively, with local governments and other stakeholders to achieve more cost effective and comprehensive solutions to transportation problems.  The report for this topic can be purchased at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3271
