Fed Highway Admin Releases Livability Report

Posted on: May 24th, 2011 by Kathy Nothstine

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently released a new report that provides an overview of the current state of the practice relative to the implementation of livability principles within the context of the Federal-aid highway program.  This research paper,  The Role of FHWA Programs in Livability: State of the Practice Summary (http://www NULL.fhwa NULL.dot NULL.gov/livability/state_of_the_practice_summary/research00 NULL.cfm), also highlights the challenges facing FHWA and other transportation agencies in changing traditional planning approaches and evolving institutional frameworks to more effectively incorporate livability principles. It offers a sampling of strategies and tools for implementing livability through different programs and agencies, and across various scales as they pertain to highway program planning and development.  An HTML version of the report, “The Role of FHWA Programs in Livability: State of the Practice Summary,” is available at 1.usa.gov/Livability-Report (http://1 NULL.usa NULL.gov/Livability-Report).  A 40-page PDF version is available at 1.usa.gov/FHWAlivabilitypdf (http://1 NULL.usa NULL.gov/FHWAlivabilitypdf).
