Evaluating IDOT's Community Impact Assessment Manual to Determine Socioeconomic Impacts of Projects

An updated Community Impact Assessment manual will be a critical tool as Illinois Department of Transportation implements the transportation components of the capital bill. This research provides Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) with a modern approach to evaluate economic benefits and demonstrate that its investments are benefiting all people across the state, regardless of socioeconomic status. This project will examine the following questions. What is the academic research and state of practice with respect to community impact assessment since IDOT last published the Community Impact Assessment manual? How can updated analytical methods for community impact assessment create sustainable and equitable conditions in Illinois communities?
