  21. 21. Talking about Accommodating All Modes in Design is too Late Planning PD&E Design ROW Impacts ($, Public Trust, Mitigation) Construction Built Project •More Costly •More Community Controversy •More Mitigation Cost •Least cost •More opportunities to incorporate community goals •Greater flexibility to evaluate a wide range of options
