Mitigating the Adverse Impacts of the Dallas North Central Expressway Construction on BusinessAuthor/Presenter: Harrison, Rob; Waldman, Benjamin
Urban reconstruction, particularly in or near central city business districts, impedes traffic flow and creates a variety of problems to those working, living, or passing through the areas affected by the project. The goal of the planner, state transportation agency, and contractor is to mitigate adverse impacts in a variety of ways from schedule compression to working directly with businesses to provide reasonable access along the construction zone. This paper examines the effectiveness of such strategies during the reconstruction of the North Central Expressway (NCE) in Dallas, Texas, and gauges the impact of the construction on the local businesses.
