A Critical Review of "Community Effects of Highways Reflected by Property Values"

Report No: 73-R54

Published in 1974

About the report:

The report reviewed was prepared by Hays Gamble, C. John Langley, Jr., Owen Sauerlender, and other researchers from Pennsylvania State University, who attempted to determine the extent to which certain effects of limited access highways altered the value of residential real estate. The review was intended to provide the highway administrator with a brief, easily digestible summary of the findings presented in that report. In addition, the findings and conclusions that could be accepted without qualification were separated from the findings that warranted deliberation.
