  • Abstract:
    This report presents the results and recommendations of an assessment of techniques for corridor preservation in South Dakota. Corridor preservation has become an important issue for South Dakota’s transportation planning and project delivery process. As the state’s population grows, the demand for improved transportation infrastructure increases. To protect potential transportation corridors from increasing developmental pressures and to preserve these alignments for future use, corridor preservation techniques must be applied. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of available corridor preservation tools and offers guidance for application of these tools within South Dakota’s legal environment and practical framework. This report serves as a reference for developing an effective corridor preservation plan for improvement projects throughout South Dakota’s transportation system. It will be a useful document for transportation planners, engineers, environmental and right of way staff, along with private utility providers and local government planners and decision makers. The report: • Provides an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current statutes, regulations, ordinances, policies, and procedures employed to acquire property interests necessary for constructing and preserving the function of transportation corridors. • Recommends a “toolkit” of practical, best practice techniques – including statutes, regulations, ordinances, policies, and procedures – that state and local agencies in South Dakota can use to more effectively manage property interests. • Recommends and assesses the associated resource requirements of changes to agency organization, institutional roles, policies, and procedures that will improve public agencies’ ability to preserve the function of transportation corridors. • Assesses the benefits, resource needs, and other costs to public agencies and private interests of systematic corridor preservation. Broad-based stakeholder understanding of the benefits of an improved corridor preservation approach formed an important element of the project.
