  • Abstract:
    Many transportation investment decisions are based in large part on a return on investment

    in terms of increased vehicular throughput and increased travel speeds/reduced travel times.

    Alternatively, today’s planning conventions also recognize the value of Complete Streets

    roadway projects that promote safety and quality access for all types of users, including

    pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and motorists. This leaves decision-makers with the

    responsibility of prioritizing transportation infrastructure with competing demands; vehicle

    efficiency vs multimodal quality. Economic development may be an important attribute

    for decision-makers to consider in their transportation investment prioritization processes.

    As such, it is important to understand the economic benefits of Complete Streets projects

    compared with non-Complete Streets type projects at different geographic scales such as

    within the community or the city as a whole to facilitate effective decision-making.
