The regulations derived from those laws which further define the planning requirements are contained in Title 23, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 450 (23 CFR 450). Both the statute and regulations include references to the role of land use considerations and related issues when transportation stakeholders, elected officials, and the public make decisions regarding the maintenance, operations, and expansion of transportation systems.
