Objectives: To Minimize the cost in travel time for inhabitants, while maximizing the quality of life, guaranteeing social and economic growth of the municipality. Methods/Analysis: It is proposed to carry out evaluation of impact of road interventions based on territorial accessibility through geostatistical analysis, as well as the linkage of major socioeconomic variables, using digital tools (ArcMap, Microsoft Excel, and TransCad). Findings: Applied mechanics allows efficient interpretation and replication of the impact assessment generated by road interventions, based on territorial accessibility, ensuring an effective decision making in the future, in order to generate a greater economic and social benefit for the city. Application/Improvement: The evaluation through accessibility facilitates the location of critical points in mobility, allowing focusing resources and improving the quality of life of the surrounding population.
