Year: 1995
VTRC No.: 95-TAR7
Abstract: This study assessed the probable economic impact of the future Interstate 73 along each of twelve alternative corridors that were proposed for the new highway. The contents of this report were originally distributed in four parts during February and March 1994. The Executive Summary is the edited version of a briefing paper that the Virginia Transportation Research Council (VTRC) produced for the Commonwealth Transportation Board's (CTB's) March 1994 meeting. The second and third parts, originally issued separately as VTRC 94-TAR9 and VTRC 94-TAR10, form the two main sections of this report, "Methodology and Results" and "Summary and Synthesis". The first part of an earlier economic study, which the Economic Information Services Division of the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) submitted to the Virginia Department of Transportation's Transportation Planning Division in February, is reproduced here as Appendix A without alteration.
