Task 85, FY 1997, "Economic Returns from Transportation Investment" (Eno Transportation Foundation). The Eno Transportation Foundation organized a forum to discuss the results of recent research into the national economic benefits associated with highway capital investment that was carried out by M. Ishaq Nadiri, an economist at New York University. Leaders in government and industry, specialists on economic development, investment analysts, and other experts came together to examine research results, to discuss the possible policy implications, and to identify ways to make such analysis more available and useful to policy makers. The object of this project was to support development of a report, appropriate for broad distribution to policy officials and practitioners, summarizing the results and conclusions of this forum. This report was prepared and published by the Eno Transportation Foundation. (NCHRP Staff: R.D. McCready)
