Prioritizing Highway Construction: Case Study in Virginia

This project proposes a methodology for prioritizing the addition of interstate highway lanes, using Virginia as a case study. The methodology uses shadow road user pricing, based on actual road user pricing elsewhere in the United States and adjusted for road segment length and average income in the surrounding region. A final report is available.
