CERTAIN ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF THE LEXINGTON NORTHERN BELT LINE

THE IMPACT IS APPRAISED ON LAND USE AND LAND VALUES OF A SIX-MILE FREE-ACCESS BYPASS BUILT PRIMARILY FOR THE RELIEF OF DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC CONGESTION. THE INFLUENCE OF THE HIGHWAY FACILITY WAS DERIVED BY COMPARING THE ACTUAL AND USE IN THE AREA PRESUMABLY AFFECTED BY THE HIGHWAY WITH THE PROBABLE LAND USE IN THE ABSENCE OF THE HIGHWAY. LAND VALUE, LAND USE, AND CASE STUDIES AND SURVEYS OF COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL ESTABLISHMENTS ON AND OFF THE BELTLINE WERE STUDIED. CHANGES IN LAND USE WERE CONSIDERABLE, MAINLY TO INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL USE, AND WERE ACCOMPANIED BY VERY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN LAND VALUES. /BPR/
