Summary: A comprehensive study was made to evaluate the noise pollution, air pollution and the associated land use, demographic and socio-economic factors for the proposed Phoenixville Spur, which is a four lane highway located approximately 25 miles northwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. An assessment is presented of the effects on the land use, social, economic, historic and natural environment of the principally affected community of Phoenixville through which the highway facility will pass. Predictions of these effects on the various categories twenty years from now are also presented.
