  • Abstract:

    Shared resource projects offer an opportunity for public transportation agencies to leverage property assets in exchange for support for transportation programs. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) require wireline infrastructure in roadway ROW that previously had no utility installations. And it was equally clear that installing extra cables at the same time to serve private sector needs would pose no more danger to roadway safety or integrity than installing only those required for ITS. The corollary was that, if the private sector took the lead and installed its own infrastructure in the ROW, it could install at the same time extra lines to support public sector needs at a very low incremental cost. This was the basis for shared resource projects. The shared resource format is also applicable to wireless telecommunications infrastructure, which can benefit from access to public property and can support transportation programs through compensation to the public sector. However, there are significant differences. Property suitable for wireless infrastructure differs from that suitable for wireline; moreover, the issues raised are not precisely the same. This guidance focuses primarily on non-technical issues as they apply to wireless projects. It is intended to help public agencies that have completed a preliminary review and believe that a wireless shared resources project may be practical. The window of opportunity for wireless shared resource projects may be even narrower than for wireline projects. Agencies are, therefore, encouraged to work toward careful but not perfect analyses to avoid missing opportunities. Agencies are also urged to develop ITS and telecommunications plans, so they can avail themselves of barter arrangements as part of wireless shared resource partnerships. Appendix. (51p; 1.3 Mb)
