MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. VOLUME X-B. MODEL-RELATED STATEWIDE SOCIAL IMPACT ANALYSIS PROCEDURES

This report documents how the model and related analyses tools can be applied to the problem of determining the relative social impacts of alternative highway patterns at the statewide and regional analyses levels. Specifically, the report contains an explanation of how seven analysis techniques can be applied to measure the relative social impacts of three highway alternatives in the Northwest Region of Michigan's lower peninsula. The emphasis is not on making definitive selection of one of the alternates relative to the others based on social criteria, rather it is on explaining how the Modeling System can be utilized to provide the information needed to make various social impact analyses as required by Federal law. /Author/
