Interstate 22 is nearing completion in Alabama to connect. This study used geographic information system (GIS) technology to predict potential interchange land use patterns, in an effort to assist in the possible implementation of access management strategies to minimize the impact of the development on a newly developing interchange on a new Interstate (I-22) connecting Birmingham, AL to Memphis, TN. ArcGIS software and available data for the counties near the interstate location were used to collect and analyze land around the proposed and constructed interchanges to identify potential land use. The process of predicting land use was used to support future work on traffic levels and access management issues around the interchange locations.
