Roadway Protocol

​The Recommended Protocol for Evaluating the Location of Sensitive Land Uses Adjacent to Major Roadways (Roadway Protocol) provides guidance to jurisdiction planners on assessing and disclosing potential cancer risk of sensitive receptors exposed to diesel particulate matter from major roadways.

The SacMetro AQMD Board approved the Roadway Protocol on October 23, 2008.

The current Roadway Protocol reflects year 2011 emissions and traffic data from EMFAC2007.
