§ 269a.46. Transportation standards.

 (a)  Access. Treatment and disposal facilities within 5 miles travel distance of interstate or limited access highways and served by roads capable of handling anticipated truck traffic or served by a dedicated limit access highway shall be deemed to be acceptable. If this standard cannot be met, the applicant shall provide information and analysis to allow the Department to assess the proximity of the proposed facility to interstate highways, the effect upon the operation of the proposed facility and the effect of the proposed facility upon the community in the transportation corridor to and from the facility. The applicant shall provide a plan for highway improvements, if necessary.

 (b)  Structures along transportation corridor. Treatment and disposal facility sites where the transportation corridor between the entrance to a facility and the nearest interstate or limited access highway is the primary access for less than five residential dwellings per road mile with no schools, community parks or hospitals, are deemed to be acceptable. If these criteria are not met, the applicant shall provide information and analysis to allow the Department to assess the effect the proposed facility will have upon safety and traffic congestion.

 (c)  Transportation restrictions. Treatment and disposal facility sites are deemed to be acceptable if there are less than four intersections per mile between the entrance to the facility and the nearest interstate or limited access highway. If there are four or more intersections per mile, the applicant shall provide information and analysis to allow the Department to assess the effect the proposed facility will have upon safety and traffic congestion.
