NCHRP Project 08-36 was established to provide a flexible, ongoing program of quick-response research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning (SCOP). SCOP wishes to create a mechanism and process based on survey research to quickly gather information about various current planning practices and innovations on topics that are of current interest to SCOP and to make that information conveniently available to the SCOP membership and others in the transportation planning community.
Project Objective(s)
The objective of this research was to produce snapshots of planning practices (Snapshots) that present relevant information in the form of brief, compact, and concise summaries of current and/or innovative transportation planning practices currently in use in the U.S. that transportation agencies can use to help them improve their own practices and results. Snapshot topics were chosen representing a variety of contexts including practical solutions to current technical challenges, responses to legislation or administrative rules, organizational designs used by agencies to accomplish their work, means of influencing agency decisionmaking, etc. 
Completed Snapshots are available below:
