Synthesis of Highway Practice 329
Including Tourism and Recreation Travel in Metropolitan and Statewide Transportation Planning and Decision-Making

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 329: Integrating Tourism and Recreation Travel with Transportation Planning and Project Delivery provides an overview of current practice at transportation agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, state tourism and parks departments, federal land management agencies, and regional planning agencies. Overall, findings reveal that many state departments of transportation (DOTs) are now actively involved in tourism-related planning issues -- either proactively or in building solutions to infrastructure, access, or environmental issues that impinge on the success of tourism in the region.  This topic is published at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3784
