  • Abstract:
    The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) has initiated major planning efforts to improve transportation

    efficiency, safety, and sustainability on critical highway corridors through its Comprehensive Highway Corridor

    (CHC) program. This project developed a Model Of Sustainability and Integrated Corridors (MOSAIC) to assist SHA

    in selecting the most sustainable corridor improvement option for its Highway Needs Inventory and long range

    planning processes. Products from this research project will also help SHA achieve its mobility, safety, socioeconomic

    and environmental stewardship objectives.

    Phase One of the project focused on defining a comprehensive set of sustainability indicators that could be

    quantitatively evaluated for major geometric improvement options, such as: adding general purpose lanes and

    converting at grade intersections to grade separated interchanges. Phase Two of the project focused on extending this

    quantitative evaluation of sustainability indicators to additional multimodal corridor improvement options, including

    high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane, high occupancy toll (HOT) lane, bus rapid transit/bus-only lane, light rail transit,

    truck-only lane, express toll lane, and road diet (i.e. lane removal).
