This study is a preliminary attempt to explore secondary impacts of highway projects by relating conceptual premises with empirical investigations. The rationale arises from the legal imperatives of both the Council on Environmental Quality Guidelines and necessities of accounting for long-range consequences of present projects. What the present document intends to do is to provide some preliminary definitions, and in a systematic approach delineate an approach to secondary, indirect or induced effects. A variety of approaches could help indicate the range of questions on secondary effects as well as the procedures that may contribute to a better understanding of the long-range ramifications of highway improvements. The underlying preoccupation of the document is outlining the conditions that make forecasting of alternative futures both possible and plausible.
