What is the Impact of Toll Roads on Land Use?


When the Road Price is Right: Land Use, Tolls, and Congestion Pricing(54 page pdf, Urban Land Institute, April 2013)

Today we review a report which looks at the present state and growth of tolling in the USA and the potential that tolling, as a revenue source, has on land use and urban planning.

This report examines a number of case studies that demonstrate different ways to implement tolling and how these affect land use.
