FHWA 4 page brochure
Imagine a multilane urban/suburban roadway where traffic is heavy, yet moves well; accommodates drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists; allows easy entry to and exit from businesses and other destinations; and has fewer crashes and other conflicts. Chances are this road is benefitting from corridor access management, a strategy that seeks an appropriate balance between the safety and mobility of a roadway facility with the access needs of adjacent land uses.
APPLYING DESIGN FLEXIBILITY & REDUCING CONFLICTS
FHWA-HEP-16-055 Aug 2016
This resource provides practical real-world planning and design information to help communities achieve connected pedestrian and bicycle networks. These networks help people of all ages and abilities get where they need to go, including to and from jobs, school, grocery stores, health care, recreation, and transit. Complete multimodal networks enhance access to opportunity for everyone and help reconnect communities.

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Safety Benefit of Raised Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas, FHWA-SA-10-020, (2010) This document is an excellent summary of the safety benefits of medians for pedestrians, pedestrian access to transit stops, pedestrian crossing maneuvers, as well as benefits of medians in general. It includes several references that will be useful as well. It is of significant value to the AMM2 chapters and sections on impacts of access management techniques and pedestrians. Key findings are reproduced below.
