Corridor Planning
​A growing number of transportation agencies are engaging in corridor management plans and projects to preserve the safety and mobility of major thoroughfares. Corridor management involves the application of strategies in one or more of the following areas: access management, land use and subdivision management, right-of-way needs and preservation, operational strategies, intergovernmental coordination, and financing of corridor management improvements. The policy, programmatic, and funding actions needed to carry out these strategies generally transcend the authority, resources, or jurisdiction of any single group or unit of government. Therefore, cooperation is necessary between governmental entities, and often with private entities as well, to accomplish corridor management objectives.

The process of drafting a corridor management plan rarely flows in a fixed, predictable series of steps. However, there is a basic logic behind the process of a corridor management plan.

Cooperative Agreements for Corridor Management NCHRP Synthesis 337
A growing number of transportation agencies are engaging in corridor management projects to preserve arterial safety and mobility. Corridor management can be generally defined as "the application of multiple strategies to achieve specific land development and transportation objectives along segments of a corridor."

Guide for the Analysis of Corridor Management Policies and Practices
This guide includes a work plan for assessing local government land development and access management practices. It also addresses how to prepare a conceptual plan for implementing corridor management at the local level. The guide does not address how to prepare a physical corridor management plan that identifies the preferred location and design of streets networks and access points.

This guidebook is a resource for incorporating access management into the transportation planning process. It is to be used by planning practitioners and access management proponents involved with transportation planning at the state, regional, and local levels. The guidebook is easy to use, provides guidance on specific actions that the reader can take, and points the reader to the appropriate resources for more detailed information.

Vermont Corridor Management Handbook
This Corridor Management Handbook (CMH) was developed to provide a technical resource for state a regional agency planners and their consultants who are undertaking development of a transportation corridor management plans. The CMH may also be helpful to a broader set of people who are involved in corridor planning efforts.

Managing Corridor Development Handbook
The challenge of managing corridor development lies in the dynamic interaction between transportation and land use. The land use plan used to predict transportation needs inevitably changes as new highway stimulate real estate speculation, rezoning, and growth.

Florida Model Ordinance: Protection of Corridors and Rights-of-Way
This model ordinance is provided for adoption, in whole or in part, into the local land development code. Florida's local governments represent a range of size, character, and unique local situations. Thus, local governments should modify standards or procedures for consistency with local conditions and practice.​

Hardin County US 31W Access Management Study
The US 31W Access Management Study was conducted for the purpose of improving safety and mobility along US 31W in Hardin and Meade counties. US 31W, locally referred to as "Dixie Highway," is an economic lifeline through the communities of Elizabethtown, Radcliff, Ft. Knox, Muldraugh, Sonora, and Upton.

Kenton County: Dixie Fix
The Dixie Fix Plan (Dixie Highway Corridor Access Management Redevelopment Plan) is a long range planning approach to relieve congestion problems and provide better access to Dixie Highway. It was conducted to identify transportation planning and design solutions to address Dixie Highway's informal status as the most heavily traveled and congested arterial in Kenton County.

Lexington: Newtown Pike Extension
The proposed Newtown Pike Extension Project extends as a four lane boulevard with a grass median from Main Street in a southerly direction to Patterson Street. At Patterson Street the project becomes a two lane street to Broadway.

Shelbyville Bypass Corridor Land-Use Management Plan
The Shelbyville Bypass Corridor Land Use Management Plan is presented for adoption by the Triple S Planning Commission as an amendment to the Shelby County 2005 Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of the Bypass Plan is to establish a "comprehensive plan" for a "Special Planning Area" in Shelbyville and Shelby County which will guide land use and transportation decisions along the new Shelbyville Bypass currently under construction and scheduled for completion in August 2009.

Houston Urban Corridor Planning
In June 2006, the City of Houston embarked on a major initiative, Urban Corridor Planning. This initiative will change how the City regulates development and designs its streets and other infrastructure in order to create a high quality urban environment in areas along METRO's light rail corridors: Main Street, Uptown, East End, North, Southeast, and University.

New Jersey Corridor Planning
A critical element of the NJTPA's regional transportation planning is identifying and advancing accessibility and mobility improvements in major travel corridors and subareas. Local concerns about heavily congested streets and highways, air quality, noise, and land use development are carefully incorporated into any recommended improvements, while addressing travel that extends beyond the jurisdiction of any one town or county.

North Carolina Corridor Studies
A vision representing the ultimate design and operational picture for each of the 55 strategic Highway Corridors has been established to provide a tool for better and consistent decision-making. The vision for these corridors was created using the NCDOT Facility Types and Control of Access Definitions.

Southern California Corridor Planning
SCAG's 2004 Regional Transportation Plan identifies transportation needs in corridors and encourages planners and policy-makers to start preparing strategies for preserving corridors now for use in the future. Good planning can prevent losing rights-of-way needed for developing transportation facilities. Thus, rights-of-way preservation is a reasonable objective, particularly in areas where new development may block a long-range corridor.

Washington DOT's Corridor Program
The intent was to combine planning for corridor-wide transit and highway improvements with the preparation of a "programmatic" or first-tier EIS meeting requirements both for NEPA and SEPA (the Washington State Environmental Policy Act). It was understood that the program would result in definition of a "preferred" set of highway and transit "projects."
