PRELIMINARY DRAFT OF THE EVANSTON IMPACT STUDY

AN EMPIRICALLY DERIVED INPUT-OUTPUT TABLE WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF INTERSTATE 80 ON EVANSTON, WYOMING FOR 1967. THE THREE MAJOR SECTORS OF IMPACT DESCRIBED ARE (1) PURCHASES BY NON-LOCAL TRAVELLERS OF LOCAL GOODS AND SERVICES, (2) HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION NERA EVANSTON, AND (3) NEW PRIVATE CONSTRUCTION THAT COULD NOT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN THE ABSENCE OF AN IMPROVED HIGHWAY. THESE THREE SECTORS GENERATE TOTAL SALES OF OVER $8 MILLION OR 22 PERCENT OF EVANSTON'S ECONOMIC OUTPUT AND APPROXIMATELY 350 ADDITIONAL EMPLOYEES. THE BUSINESSES PRIMARILY AFFECTED BY THESE SALES INCLUDE MOTELS AND HOTELS, GASOLINE SERVICE STATIONS, EATING AND DRINKING PLACES AND WHOLESALERS AND DISTRIBUTORS.
