Note that this measure of economic development impact would not overlap with or duplicate road user benefits measured in the benefit-cost analysis already undertaken by the Nebraska Department of Roads.

This book provides the latest evidence on the impact of infrastructure investment on economic and social indicators. Presenting several country studies, the book explains how infrastructure investment can increase output, taxes, trade, and firm productivity.

Still, using state highway spending in addition to federal highway spending as a broader measure of government outlays, we estimate a lower bound for the peak multiplier of roughly 3. Description In this study a methodology to present an evaluation framework for computing economic impact analysis of highway improvement projects is developed.

Another objective is to study the impact of locally implemented highway improvements on the entire transportation network. Accessibility changes of improved locations are also measured to understand the impact of these individual projects.

The economic evaluation methodology described in the FHWA “Best Practices” study of was used in this assessment of the completed portions of the Appalachian Development Highway System.

Economic Principles Government is often asked to make highway investments for "economic development" purposes. One measure that impact investing is gaining more traction is the growing collection of books written about that topic.
