Impacts of Toll Roads on the Regional Economy: Suggested Measures

Impacts of Toll Roads on the Regional Economy: Suggested Measures

Date: July 2006
Creator: Clower, Terry L. & Weinstein, Bernard L.
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.

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

Date: March 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs. Recognizing the importance of a reliable long-term water supply, the Dallas/Fort Worth region has invested heavily in reservoirs and transmission facilities over the past 50 years. Indeed, the dramatic population and employment growth enjoyed by the Metroplex over the past several decades would not have occurred absent an abundant and reliable supply of fresh water for residential and commercial uses. Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.
