Pennsylvania Case Study
Constructing a north and South gateway into Pennsylvania would bring more trucking traffic into the state raising revenue and commerce. The additional lanes of entry open the door for technology to logistically plot transportation companies in and out of the state creating employment opportunities. The government could benefit financially by way of taxes that would come from people transitioning into the state for employment.
Additional taxes could be expected from fuel, realty, sales and tolls for entry onto the proposed highway.
As Sandy suggested, synergism would come from the satellite locations at Penn State. Technical companies would have the luxury of functioning at a prestigious college campus where students could support their needs. In addition, the free land that the state is offering would sweeten the development deal.
