Under the guidance of the Federal Highway Administration, ICF conducted an analysis of the linkages between rural transportation improvements and local economic development at the Fort Peck Reservation in northeastern Montana.
The study focused on identifying local economic development initiatives to serve as engines of growth and determining the types of highway investments that are needed to support and capture the full range of economic benefits associated with each initiative. The analysis applied the concept of incremental benefit estimation in order to assess benefit reliance on transportation improvements and used input-output analysis to determine potential regional economic benefits linked to highway system investments.
