EVALUATION OF REGIONAL ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ALTERNATIVE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS

A four-part report decribes how a multiregional, multi-industry forecasting model was used to evaluate alternative highway systems. The driving force in the forecasting model is a set of equations that explain industry location by the relative prices that industry faces at each location. These prices include land, labor, capital and transportation cost. Using an ICC relationship between speed and line-haul cost, the truck vehicle cost per mile is substituted for the speed data in the DOT national highway network model.
