PREDICTING THE IMPACTS OF TRANSPORTATION ON THE SPREAD OF URBAN BLIGHT

Large-scale, urban transportation developments can affect the spread of urban blight through residential areas both directly and indirectly. Sources of blight and their specifications in filtering models are reviewed. Relations between transportation developments and sources of blight are considered to determine whether filtering models can be used to predict the impacts of a development. While none of the models are adequate for this purpose, they provide the basis for a procedure to consider a proposed development's impacts.
