By means of historical (census) data and study versus control area comparison, the impacts of two Chicago freeways are analyzed. Population change is found to be a sensitive indicator of impact, but the effect is modified by the character of the community. Population change is apparently related to distance from the freeway. The spatial pattern of change agrees with the predictions of ″Accessibility Acceptance Theory.″ The results also suggest that effects on population change diminish over time until equilibrium is reached.
