- Access Management - Access management is the process of administering the connections between public highways and adjoining land. Transportation officials must balance the need for community and business development with the need for safe and efficient travel.
- Air Space Guidelines - The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has prepared this series of questions and answers to guide those who administer lands and property rights acquired as a result of a Federally-funded highway or transportation project under Title 23 U.S.C. For specific situations and project level guidance, we encourage the reader to contact the State Department of Transportation or Highway Agency (SDOT/SHA) or the FHWA Division Office located in your State or the District of Columbia.

- Corridor Preservation Case Studies - An ongoing challenge faced by state and local transportation agencies is keeping up with population shifts and the resulting shifts in demand for different transportation routes. Given the extensive lead time involved in transportation projects, these agencies have a special mandate to anticipate future demand and plan proactively. An increasingly valuable tool for dealing with this challenge is corridor preservation-an environmentally sound and cost-effective approach for avoiding and minimizing impacts associated with transportation projects.
- Innovative Uses of Right-of-Way - Many transportation agencies are finding creative ways to meet the funding demands of highway investments. Innovative uses of ROW, including property management practices, advertising and sponsorships, and airspace leasing, may offer transportation agencies with new revenue streams, as well as cost savings and social and environmental benefits.
- Project Development Guide - The Office of Real Estate Services Project Development Guide (PDG) contains a practical approach to developing a right-of-way project. It leaves the requirements needed for Federal-aid projects to the regulatory material found elsewhere. In it you will find plain talk and common sense ways to deal with developing a right-of-way project in addition to mini-case studies to demonstrate how others have handled a variety of right-of-way problems.
- Renewable Energy in Highway Right-of-Way - State Departments of Transportation are increasingly exploring the use of highway right-of-way (ROW) to accommodate renewable energy technologies. The ample lands DOTs manage are often close to electrical loads and have sometimes already been disturbed, potentially making these properties ideal locations for renewable energy applications.
