This digest summarizes findings of National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 3-52A, “Impacts of Access-Management Techniques.” NCHRP Report 420, “Impacts of Access Management Techniques” (1999), presents relationships between access density and accident rates. This digest uses additional data from Minnesota to confirm these relationships. The digest is organized as follows: Introduction; Problem Statement; Objective and Approach; Background; Results; Comparisons; and Accident Rate Indices.
