The economic development impacts of investing in an Interstate 10 expansion project in Texas

Evans, Stephen Daniel 30 October 2012 (has links)
Transportation planners, engineers, and administrators face the difficult tasks of prioritizing and justifying proposed investments in transportation infrastructure, particularly as government budgets tighten and alternative investments compete for public funding.
