California Bypass Study: The Economic Impacts of Bypass Highways

By System Metrics Group, Economic Development Research Group, and Cambridge Systematics for California Department of Transportation, 2006

For California DOT, EDR Group (under subcontract to System Metrics Group, Inc.) was part of a team effort to develop improved knowledge and systems for the agency to assess and plan highway bypasses of communities.

The project had two key elements. The first part involved a "meta analysis" evaluation of the local, regional and statewide impacts of past highway bypass projects around the US, based on several hundred projects. The second element involved the development of a standard methodology for the analysis of economic impacts of bypass projects, to improve project planning, design and implementation.
