THE LAND USE AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT IMPACTS OF BELTWAYS
The report assesses the land use and urban development impacts of circumferential, limited access highways. Following a review of theoretical, historical, and policy issues, prior research, and case studies of beltways' impacts, a comparative statistical analysis of 54 metropolitan areas--27 with beltways and 27 without--is presented. Then the findings of detailed case studies of beltways in eight urban areas are summarized. The report closes with an assessment of the policy implications of the effects of beltways on development patterns, the economies of central cities and regions, minorities, energy conservation, and environmental quality. Specific recommendations to maximize the benefits and to minimize the potential adverse effects of beltways are offered. An extensive annotated bibliography is included.
