of Hale Parkway Improvements
The proposed Hale Parkway Improvements will generate significant community benefits. Using published data, economic values were estimated for eight types of benefits associated with the Hale Parkway project. Benefits were estimated for the existing parkway, and compared to estimated benefits for the proposed parkway improvements.
$2.2 million = average additional benefits per year after project completion.
Benefits for years to come
In the same way that a home holds value year after year, natural capital improvements such as the Hale Parkway Improvements also provides value over time. The annual flow of ecosystem services presented above will continue into the future, and communities will continue to benefit from the Hale Parkway Improvements for many years to come.
$61 million = total additional benefits generated by the project over a 50 year period.
