Transportation plays a vital role in the development of a country’s economy; citizen’s quality of life, access to goods and services and also the pattern for distribution of economic activity. This paper reviews the direction of a research study conducted to understand the quality of air, soil and water as well as impacts on socio-economic conditions of local habitats from highway and road construction activities.
