  • Abstract:
    Proper planning for highway improvement programs requires that alternative improvement strategies be evaluated in terms of the performance and benefits expected to be received relative to the amount of capital expenditures proposed. This is important at the national level as well as at the State and local levels. Capital improvement cost data is a necessary input to this evaluation process. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is continually making such evaluations for its internal planning needs, and to provide information to other Federal agencies and to the Congress. The biennial highway needs report to Congress includes results from this type of analysis. There are many uses for highway improvement unit cost information. Highway needs analysis models require improvement cost data as input. Investment - Performance models, which relate the level of highway capital investment to future highway performance, also must have this type of data as input. These models that estimate future highway performance based on a series of alternative levels of capital investment in highway facilities, or that relate future performance to the types of improvements proposed, are becoming more important as the funds for highway investment reach critically low levels in many jurisdictions.
