Title:Effects of Infill Development and Regional Growth on At-Risk Populations' Exposure to Traffic Density
Principal Investigators:Carolyn McAndrews and Wesley Marshall
University:University of Colorado Denver
Status:Completed
Year:2015
Project #:MPC-488
Keywords:air pollution, corridors, high volume roads, land use planning, low income groups, public health, smart growth, traffic density
 

Abstract

The study uses exposure to traffic density as the primary metric to represent public health risk because it is widely used in epidemiologic studies as an indicator of exposure to air pollution and because it is related to various adverse health outcomes. In addition, transportation planning literature has linked traffic density to poor residential livability in neighborhoods, including barriers to transit access and physical activity.
