ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES FOR CONSTRUCTION OF TRI-STATE REGIONAL HIGHWAYS

THE PURPOSE OF THIS ANALYSIS IS TO DEVELOP ALTERNATIVE PROPOSALS FOR THE GEOGRAPHIC ALLOCATION OF FREEWAY CONSTRUCTION FUNDS, WHICH CAN BE USED AS GUIDELINES FOR THE DEVELOPENT OF ALTERNATIVE REGIONAL HIGHWAY NETWORKS. THE POLICY LEVEL ALLOCATION DECISION IS EMPHASIZED. THE ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE REALLOCATION PROPOSALS WILL PROVIDE SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO HIGHWAY USERS IN TERMS OF REDUCED PER-MILE TRAVEL COSTS AND INCREASED SERVICE. THE CHANGES WOULD ALSO LEAD TO A REDUCTION IN COMMUNITY IMPACTS BECAUSE OF THE REDUCTION IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION IN THE MOST DENSELY DEVELOPED PORTIONS OF THE REGION. /AUTHOR/
