Estimating the Employment Impacts of Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Road Infrastructure

Estimating the Employment Impacts of Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Road Infrastructure (PDF)

Source:  Political Economy Research Institute

In this case study, we estimate the employment im-pacts of various transportation infrastructure pro-jects in the city of Baltimore. We are particularly interested in examining the differences in employ-ment resulting from different project types: those that focus on bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and those that do not. Using an input-output model, we evaluate project-specific data provided by the City of Baltimore. We find that pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure projects create 11-14 jobs per $1 mil-lion of spending while road infrastructure projects create approximately 7 jobs per $1 million of expen-ditures. Below we describe the projects we analyzed and present more detailed estimates of the employ-ment impacts.
