Call For Paper Title
The Local Economic Impacts of Transportation Investments
Call Description

Ever increasingly, urban transportation projects are required to balance the needs of a wide variety of stakeholders, from residents, to commuters, to local businesses. How these groups are prioritized and served by a project can often be a complicated political decision, on which the success of the project as a whole can hinge.   


While methodologies for capturing the direct changes related to on-street activities are generally well established, how to best recognize and capture the economic impacts of transportation projects are less developed. For this reason, ABE30 is seeking ideas on how to standardize methodologies to capture the economic impact of a host of modal investments, including projects such as cycling infrastructure expansions, complete streets, and safety/Vision Zero programs. These methodologies will preferably be grounded in real world examples using common data sources readily available to cities.
