The Regional Economic Impacts of Bypasses: A Longitudinal Study Incorporating Spatial Panel Econometrics and Multilevel Modeling
Record Type: UTC
This project seeks to understand the economic impacts of bypasses on communities at the ZIP code-level. The simultaneous analysis of 60 different bypasses across Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, will allow researchers to make broader conclusions, while keeping in mind the individual characteristics of communities across the Midwest. Research findings are expected to have real-world applications in terms of enhancing mobility and safety by diverting trucks and other traffic; maintaining or restoring the economic vitality of affected communities' central business districts; and minimizing transportation costs.
