AN EVALUATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF SOCIAL DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES IN THE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS

AN EXAMINATION IS MADE OF THE FEASIBILITY OF USING SOCIAL DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES IN THE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS. THIS WAS DONE THROUGH A SURVEY OF VALUES AND VIEWS OF RESIDENTS LOCATED WITHIN THE GENERAL AREA OF THE CORRIDOR OF THE NORTHERN EXTENSION OF THE STADIUM FREEWAY IN MILWAUKEE. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS PREPARED BY A TEAM OF ENGINEERS AND SOCIAL SCIENTISTS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE. RESULTS OF THE SURVEY ARE PRESENTED RELATIVE TO DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS, ATTITUDES TOWARD TRANSPORTATION SERVICES, ATTITUDES TOWARD NONTRANSPORTATION SERVICES, AND ANALYSIS OF FREEWAY SUPPORT AND OPPOSITION TO THE FREEWAY PROJECT. CONCLUSIONS OF THE RESEARCH ARE SUCH THAT TECHNIQUES APPEAR TO BE FEASIBLE AND CAN PROVIDE VALUABLE INFORMATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PLANS.
