IN THE PATH OF PROGRESS: FEDERAL HIGHWAY RELOCATION ASSURANCES

THE ROLE THE COURTS AND THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION HAVE PLAYED, AND COULD PLAY, IN IMPLEMENTING THE RELOCATION ACTS IS ANALYZED. THE ACTS ARE DISCUSSED IN THE CONTEXT OF CONGRESS' ATTEMPT TO RECONCILE NATIONAL HOUSING AND HIGHWAY PRIORITIES, AND THE HOUSING MARKET EFFECTS OF URBAN HIGHWAY DISPLACEMENT ON LOW-INCOME GROUPS. FULL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RELOCATION ACTS REQUIRES THAT THE FHWA MINIMIZE THE DISLOCATING EFFECTS OF HIGHWAY DISPLACEMENT ON THE HOUSING MARKET BY CONSTRUCTING NEW HOUSING UNITS TO REPLACE THOSE DEMOLISHED FOR HIGHWAYS. /DOT/
