The TPICS (Transportation Project Impact Case Studies) System
Contains: (1) a searchable database of past projects and their observed impacts on economic development, and (2) a predictive tool that estimates the range of likely impacts of proposed new projects, based on results from already-built projects. See buttons above.
Case Search (Past Projects)
You define a set of project characteristics. The system screens available cases and selects those that meet your criteria. You can then view the selected cases.
The Case Search feature allows you to search for specific types of projects in specific types of settings. So if a specific type of project has been proposed or suggested for your area, you can use this information to inform agency planners and public meeting attendees about past experiences with similar types of projects. The available information includes descriptions of project features and pre/post data pertaining to project impacts on the local or regional economy. It also includes detailed results from local interviews on project objectives, implementation issues and other factors affecting the nature of project impacts. Aerial photos and links to other reports are also provided. Lessons learned from these experiences can be used to improve project design and implementation processes.
