INTERMODAL IMPACTS: INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS AND AIRPORT VIABILITY

The author examines the impact of individual interstate highway projects on airport viability in the State of Indiana from 1957 to 1970. The airports considered are or have been terminals for major trunk and local service air carriers since 1957. The total number of passengers carrier by air is taken as the measure of airport activity and viability. A multivariate time series methodology was used. It was found than the construction of new roads, which increases accessibility, is beneficial to larger airports but detrimental to the smaller local-service airports. /TRRL/
