This reserach identifies successful, transferrable innovations in the integration of transportation and land use planning on a corridor level.   The final report contains an inventory of notable practices from a number of state DOTs and other agencies that have broadened the scope of transportation planning and design in order to improve the management and function of regional transportation corridors and support communmity quality of life goals.  Some of the strategies used by jurisdictions include access managment, multimodal options, transit service improvements, rezoning to increase density, requiring development to compliment transportation corridors and controlling land uses adjacent to transportation facilities.  Six case studies from Colorado, Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, Utah, and Virginia analyze the goals, management strategies, institutional arrangements, tools and land use development approaches that can be used by communities to achieve integrated transportation and land use for more sustainable communities.
