Abstract

This research reviews the literature on the effects of highway infrastructure on economic outcomes to inform the current debate. The government has at times premised investment in highway infrastructure in part on the belief that it contributes to economic growth. However, the economic effects of highway infrastructure remain a matter of debate. We focus on highway infrastructure because it constitutes the largest share of federal spending on transportation infrastructure and because there exists a rich literature assessing the economic effects of highways. We start by highlighting connections between highways and the economy, noting the recent calls for reconsideration of national transportation policy. We then turn to an analysis of the quantitative literature tracing the effects of highway infrastructure on such economic outcomes as productivity, output, and employment. We conduct this analysis in two ways. First, we present a qualitative discussion of the literature. Second, we conduct a formal quantitative Meta analysis to discern more clearly why the literature has produced its current findings about infrastructure and the economy. After discussing these findings, we consider their implications for highway policy and for future research.
