Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 059. Transportation Investment and Economic Expansion: Case Studies

Task 59, FY 1994, "Transportation Investment and Economic Expansion: Case Studies" (Louis Berger International, Inc. Mr. Isaac Shafran). The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Special Committee on Economic Expansion and Development in September 1992 specified as one of the objectives, in its Strategic Plan for Continuing Activities, the development of a set of practical case studies based on state experiences. The case studies would then be used to help AASHTO and member states to focus on priority issues for post-Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) actions as well as practical applications. The objective of this research was to summarize, in simple and understandable language, available information on the linkages between transportation infrastructure investment and economic expansion, so as to help improve transportation investment decisions. The research approach was based on a review of the fundamental ways in which transportation investment influences the economic development process in today's policy environment.
