state a fact about the project

This report documents current practices used by state DOTs to design and manage the urban freeway roadside (UFR) environment. The UFR is part of a greater urban environment with broad social, political, economic, and environmental implications for management. There are numerous UFR stakeholders, such as their respective municipalities, residents, adjacent landowners and businesses, traveling public, and state DOTs, and each has specific requests, requirements, and considerations. Among these is an acceptable level of maintenance and stakeholder expectations for aesthetics.
