EVALUATION OF REGIONAL ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ALTERNATIVE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS
Projections of economic and demographic variables are made by economic area for the year 1990 under six alternative assumptions. These concern highway systems. Results of the study show that the benefits of the Completed Interstate System by size classification of the areas are mixed, but the low-income areas do not benefit. Both low-income and small economic areas benefit by the Extended Primary and Economic Development systems, with relatively more areas benefiting from the latter. The Urban system stimulates growth in the largest urban areas, but the percent gains are not large.
