Economic Analysis

San Diego Forward will include a comprehensive economic analysis to assist the SANDAG Board of Directors and the public in understanding the economic implications of the Plan. The analysis will consider the following:

  • Economic Impact, which will measure not only the effects of construction activity on the regional economy, but also the long-term economic impact of the increased efficiency of the transportation system.

  • Benefit-Cost, which will examine the ratio of benefits such as time savings versus the costs of the proposed transportation network.

  • Economic Competitiveness,which will investigate the broader economic effects of transportation improvements on the San Diego economy.

The economic analysis will develop fresh ways of measuring and communicating the impact of transportation infrastructure, and how it will influence the growth of the regional economy.
