BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS AND THE LOCATION OF URBAN HIGHWAYS

SOME OF THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH ROUTE-LOCATION DECISIONS ARE INHERENT IN BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS AS IT IS COMMONLY PRACTICED, BUT THAT A MORE FUNDAMENTAL WEAKNESS LIES IN THE GOVERNMENTAL FRAMEWORK IN WHICH BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS IS CONDUCTED AND THE CONSEQUENT BURDENS THAT ARE PLACED ON IT AS A DECISION-MAKING TOOL. /AUTHOR/
