The 2000 Rails-with-Trails Best Practices Report first defines helpful rail-with-trail vocabulary, describes trends within the railroad business, and several case studies. Next, it provides advice on the best rail-with-trail building practices including feasibility and site selection, policy, legal issues, design, signage, maintenance, and more.

This report was prepared for the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Railroad Administration by Alta Transportation Consulting, Texas Transportation Institute, SCI Consulting, Andrea Ferster, Esq. and Ensco, Inc.
