TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 612: Safe and Aesthetic Design of Urban Roadside Treatments explores recommended design guidelines for safe and aesthetic roadside treatments in urban areas. The report also examines a toolbox of roadside treatments designed to balance pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorist safety and mobility.
NCHRP Report 612 includes four appendices, three of which are available online. The fourth, Appendix C, is included with the report. Appendix A includes detailed information about the urban control zone corridor sites. Appendix B includes the summary statistics for the report's case study sites. Appendix C includes an urban roadside design toolbox, and Appendix D provides draft language for the urban chapter in the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide.
Tables 19 and 20 on p. 43 of NCHRP Report 612 include incorrect information. The corrected tables are available online.
