Access Management

City and County Access Management

The Access Management is the process of controlling the placement and design of intersections and driveways that access a public roadway.  Access Management balances the need for property owners with the need of local government to provide a safe efficient roadway network benefiting both.  These Guidelines are those which the Bannock Transportation Planning Organization has adopted for the Pocatello/Chubbuck urbanized area. The Guidelines recognize that no one criteria can be absolute; given the unlimited variations in parcel size, terrain, development type, and surrounding roadway system. The Guidelines apply primarily for commercial property located on arterials or collectors; and are divided into four sections.

State Highway Access Management

Rules Governing Highway Right-of-Way Encroachments on State Right- of-Way or Access Management is controlled by the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD).   The ITD’s policy divided the state highway system into six (6) different highway types.   These highway types determine the rules and requirements for access the State Highway.   Within the Pocatello/Chubbuck urban area the rules are fairly consistent.  There are some difference in the two policies but they are very close.   When an access is on the State Highway then the ITD rules apply.
