The Positive Impacts of Transportation Investment: Compilation of Working Papers

The objective of NCHRP Project 8-36, Task 22 is to produce an easily understandable document that effectively communicates the positive impacts of investments in this nation’s transportation system. The work will be used by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in its Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) reauthorization efforts. To achieve this goal, Cambridge Systematics prepared the four working papers in this document, each covering an important aspect of the positive impacts of transportation investment, as follows: 1. Economic Benefits of Transportation Investment; 2. Environmental Benefits of Transportation Investment; 3. Community and Social Benefits of Transportation Investment; and 4. The Benefits of Reducing Congestion. At the end of this compilation of working papers is an appendix containing a compendium of the facts from these papers.
