ALTERNATIVES CONFRONTING THE HIGHWAY PLANNER

ALTERNATIVES ARE ANALYZED OF THE KINDS OF ROAD SYSTEMS THAT MIGHT BE BUILT IN METROPOLITAN AND RURAL AREAS. IN MANY CASES, USE OF LAND FOR HIGHWAYS OR FOR URBAN USES IS IN COMPETITION WITH AGRICULTURAL USE. DEVELOPMENT IN METROPOLITAN AREAS TENDS TOWARD LOW DENSITY IN NEW RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS. OTHER LIMITATIONS MAY PRODUCE A DIFFERENT DENSITY OR DISTRIBUTION PATTERN IN THE FUTURE. SIGNIFICANT ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE WAY THAT RAPID DEVELOPMENT MAY BE DIRECTED IN METROPOLITAN AREAS.
