The Washington Roundtable asked The Boston Consulting Group to assess the economic impact of the components of transportation proposals that received the broadest support during the past two legislative sessions. The two organizations will release research assessing the economic impact of investment in preservation and maintenance as well as six major improvement projects in key economic corridors over 12 years.
The research includes data on impacts related to congestion, road conditions and bridge conditions. It also assesses impacts on business supply chain costs, job creation, port volumes, state tax revenues and transportation-related expenses for drivers. It also quantifies the future condition of the state transportation system absent increased investment.
