Guide for Integrating Goods and Services Movement by Commercial Vehicles in Smart Growth Environments
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 844: Guide for Integrating Goods and Services Movement by Commercial Vehicles in Smart Growth Environments. The report describes policy, planning, design, and operations practices considering the coexistence of moving goods and services in smart growth environments at both the design and implementation stages as well as retroactively improving existing conditions. This report will help readers understand common issues and conflicts pertaining to Smart Growth, how those issues and conflicts manifest themselves in different environments, and the types of strategies and actions stakeholders can take to better integrate goods and services movement by commercial vehicles in smart growth environments.
The report also presents the results of six case studies, each of which addresses one of the following Smart Growth classifications: industrial areas transitioning to housing and entertainment districts, working waterfronts transitioning to mixed-use and/or recreation, older commercial and neighborhood areas being revitalized, retrofitting aging commercial corridors, greenfield new communities, and large-scale reconstruction.
