WHY INFORMATION MATTERS: WEST VIRGINIA: A RURAL POINT OF VIEW

The Appalachian Regional Highway System is the only highway system ever created by the U.S. government with the sole purpose of stimulating economic development. And there is ample evidence that highway investment has stimulated economic development in this rural region of West Virginia. There remain, however, many questions specific to rural areas that need to be addressed. This conference presentation asks these questions. For example, are the transportation, social, political, economic, and investment criteria for mountainous and rural regions comparable to the criteria for urban regions?
