ATTITUDES, OPINIONS, AND EXPERIENCES OF RELOCATEES IN TEXAS DISPLACED BY HIGHWAYS UNDER THE 1970 RELOCATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Three studies of relocatees are reported. In the first, 108 businesses and institutional proprietors who were displaced between 1971 and 1972 were interviewed to evaluate the relocation program. Only 10% of the respondents gave the program a bad rating. About 44% of the respondents were pleased about the program even though they had bad or mixed feelings about the highway improvement. Rcommendations of the study are listed. Another study analyzed the experience of residents displaced from low-valued housing (under $15,000) for highway construction. Most relocatees were satisfied with the payments, information, and services received. A third study analyzed the experiences of residents relocated from their homes as a result of highway relocation in several areas of Texas. Details and findings of all three studies are briefly outlined.
