SOCIAL IMPACTS: EVALUATION OF HIGHWAY PROJECT DEVELOPMENT IN URBAN RESIDENTIAL AREAS
The report delineates key variables which may be utilized by highway planners to predict effects of a proposed route on non-users. Techniques for measuring predictive variables are also provided. The predictive factors and measurement procedures were organized as follows: Land usages and community/neighborhood form; demographic characteristics of area residents; and socio-psychological attributes of residents. Specific short-term social consequences of urban freeway construction are discussed, as well as long-term multi-disciplinary forecasting techniques.
