Editors: Jordan G. Clark and Ian R. Rodriguez
Book Description:
Policymakers at all levels of government are debating a wide range of options for addressing the nation's faltering economic conditions. One option that is once again receiving attention is accelerated investments in the nation's public infrastructure - that is, highways, mass transit, airports, water supply and wastewater, and other facilities - in order to create jobs while also promoting long-term economic growth. This book discusses policy issues associated with using infrastructure as a mechanism to benefit economic recovery. Discussed are the projects to improve bus rapid transit service which can contribute to economic development; improved DOT collaboration and communication could enhance the use of technology to manage congestion; and the efforts in surface transportation to address highway congestion through real-time traffic information systems.
