Understanding where people choose to live and the factors that influence housing location decisions could improve the type, scale, and timeliness of transportation improvements and policies.
This project examines demographics, housing characteristics, education quality, and other factors in comparison to traffic congestion levels to gain insight into how congestion affects housing choice. The resulting assessment will enable policy makers to better understand the role of traditional capital or operational improvements and policy and planning decisions in addressing the state’s congestion problem. The assessment will provide insight to a comprehensive policy approach to address urban and suburban congestion while encouraging market-based decisions.
Check back for a publication of this study to come out late Summer 2015.
