Modeling the Reciprocal Relationship between Metropolitan Roadway Expansion and Urban Land Development with Elementary Extensions to Environmental Consequences
Within North American metropolitan regions, growth in urban land development, vehicular travel, and roadway capacity consistently outpace growth in either people or jobs. More puzzling is this trio’s rapid growth in regions that are stable or declining in people and jobs. Disproportionate growth in urban land, roads, and traffic relative to people or jobs represents both a challenge and an opportunity.
