Development of the Des Moines access management plan by David Plazak( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to Iowa crash records, almost 10% of all crashes in Iowa occur at commercial driveways. Most of these crashes occur on arterials within municipalities. In recent years, nearly a quarter of these crashes have occurred in the Des Moines metropolitan area. This makes the Des Moines metropolitan area a prime candidate for improved access management. Case study research in Iowa has shown that access management is an extremely effective highway safety tool - well-managed routes are, on average, 40% safer than poorly managed routes. The Des Moines metropolitan area has many miles of four-lane, undivided arterials constructed when less was known about the importance of managing access to adjacent land development. This project involved a cooperative effort of the Des Moines Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (Des Moines Area MPO) and the Center for Transportation Research and Education (CTRE) at Iowa State University to develop a comprehensive access management study and program for the Des Moines metropolitan area. The goal of the study is to use the knowledge developed to make improvements that will reduce access-related crashes. It is also anticipated that this project will help local officials make better decisions about access management so that future safety and operational problems can be avoided

The Des Moines Area Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO) Research on Metropolitan Rest Areas provides information on the planning, the development, and the abandonment of rest areas in and near metropolitan areas, particularly focusing on rest areas located near Ankeny and near Waukee. With the possible removal of the Ankeny and Waukee rest areas due to proposed Interstate interchange projects, the information provided herein is aptly pertinent. This paper first discusses the history, the planning, and the existing conditions of Iowa rest areas. Iowa and federal legislation, available Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) plans and reports, and additional information are evaluated and described in order to present a correct understanding of Iowa rest area issues
