IMPACT STUDIES: NORTHEAST CORRIDOR TRANSPORTATION PROJECT. VOLUME IV. PART A. INTRA-I SUMMARY

The report contains the Northeast Corridor socio-economic impact model and the results of sensitivity tests on the model. More specifically, the report consists of concise descriptions of the model structure, the calibrated equations, and the solution methodology. The report also contains the result of a partial validation of the model. Several sensitivity tests on the model were conducted with respect to changes in passenger and freight impedance changes. In terms of the impact effects, geographical redistributive effects on population were more sensitive to passenger impedance changes. While the magnitude of the predicted geographical redistributions must be interpreted with caution, the predicted patterns of changes appear realistic. (Author)
