Access management is the harmonizing of access to land with the traffic mobility needs of the roadway.  It includes a set of tools that help protect public investments in roadways and improve safety.  Primary access management tools and techniques include the position, spacing and design of intersections without signals (cross streets and driveways), raised medians and median openings, signalized intersections, and acceleration/deceleration lanes. Access management is chiefly discussed in the perspective of the non-freeway environment although freeways (limited access facilities) can also benefit from appropriately spaced exit and entrance ramps.More information on this study at
