Call Description:
The TRB Committee on Transportation Issues in Major U.S. Cities (ABE30) invites papers on Livable Arterials: An Oxymoron or Urban Elixir?

The AASHTO functional classification system specifies that arterials should provide for high mobility and low access. Arterials in urban contexts often fail to fit nicely into this categorization because they provide for both high mobility and high access. This paper call is looking for research that seeks to better understand this mismatch - and the positive and negative implications of violating the standard functional classification system - with respect to issues such as road safety, multimodal transportation, urban vitality, economic development, and livability. Papers demonstrating the use of evolving and new data sources for safety and mobility to empirically demonstrate these tradeoffs are encouraged.

Subject Areas(s):
Data and Information Technology
Pedestrians and Bicyclists
Policy
Safety and Human Factors
