ATTITUDES TOWARD PLANNING AND ZONING ARE GENERALLY FAVORABLE AND BECOME EVEN MORE SO THROUGH EXPOSURE TO LITERATURE FAVORABLE TO THOSE PROCESSES. ECONOMIC ANALYSES OF ACTUAL AND HYPOTHETICAL DATA LARGELY REVEAL BENEFICIAL HIGHWAY IMPACT AND ARE IMPORTANT TO ANY INTERPRETATION OF FAVORABLE ATTITUDES TOWARD HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT AND TOWARD PLANNING AND ZONING FOR HIGHWAY PROTECTION.
