  • Abstract:
    To improve environmental analysis of indirect land use impacts of highway capacity improvements, this study analyzed

    the land use and growth patterns of 20 Oregon communities over 20 years. Using a Geographic Information System and

    aerial photos, growth patterns were categorized and mapped. Factors related to land use and transportation were

    evaluated for their relationships to resulting growth patterns. These relationships were further investigated in four indepth

    case studies of development prior to, during, and after construction of a highway capacity improvement.

    Additional case studies are currently underway. The primary product of this research will be guidance for completing an

    assessment of the indirect impacts on land use and growth of a highway improvement. This assessment is required by

    environmental regulations, but tools and data for developing general land use forecasts is limited. The guidebook will

    include examples from the case studies, data types and possible sources, and guidance on using GIS tools for comparing

    alternative scenarios. 58 p.
