Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the type of metrics that can be employed in evaluating the economic, developmental, and fiscal impacts of toll roads. These metrics are drawn from the literature of analyses and case studies of toll and non-toll facilities. Where the literature does not address a specific metric for a relevant impact, the authors suggest one. These metrics will be used in later components of this research project to assess impacts realized or projected for selected case studies of local and regional economies from the construction and operation of toll facilities in Texas in urban, suburban, and rural settings.
