SECONDARY IMPACTS OF INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS IN THE DENVER REGION
Statistical correlations between the amount and form of land use changes and the location of new highways and wastewater facilities were established for four major metropolitan areas individually and in combination. The statistical findings were supplemented with results from a dynamic simulation model of land use in metropolitan Washington. The broader study (Secondary Effects of Public Investments in Highways and Sewers) emphasizes approximations which helped generalize results across different metropolitan areas. This report presents econometric analyses derived for the Denver region. These statistical analyses illustrate the historical influence of highways, water, and sewer facilities in shaping land use patterns in the Denver area and provide basic methods for forecasting impacts of future investments.
