ALONG THE INTERSTATE: HIGHWAY INTERCHANGE LAND USE DEVELOPMENT

DEVELOPMENT WHICH OCCURRED AT INTERCHANGES IN ALABAMA DURING A SEVEN YEAR PERIOD, 1964-1970, IS ANALYZED TO ASCERTAIN MEANINGFUL PATTERNS. ASSOCIATIVE RELATIONSHIPS ARE DISCUSSED BETWEEN DEVELOPMENT AND SUCH FACTORS AS QUADRANT LOCATION, DISTANCE, INTERSECTING ROAD, POPULATION, AND FRONTAGE ROADS. THE PREFERRED LOCATION, PARTICULARLY FOR HIGHWAY-ORIENTED BUSINESSES, SEEMS TO BE THE QUADRANT OF THE INTERCHANGE WHICH IS FORMED BY THE INTERSECTION OF AN INTERSTATE AND A U. S. HIGHWAY AND WHICH IS LOCATED EITHER PROXIMATE TO A SIZEABLE POPULATION CONCENTRATION OR ELSE 10 TO 12 MILES FROM THE NEAREST URBAN AREA. PROPER CONTROLS MUST BE ESTABLISHED CONSIDERABLY IN ADVANCE OF THE OPENING OF THE INTERCHANGE TO TRAFFIC. /AUTHOR/
