The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Do Highway Funds Spur Economic Development?

Stephanedes, Yorgos J.

This 1990 study examined highway investments in four different types of counties in Minnesota: regional centers, urban-influenced counties, agricultural counties, and natural resource-based counties over a fifteen-year period. Improved highways tend to help the economy in urban areas but may hurt it in adjacent areas.
