Evaluation of Cost-Effectiveness of Highway Design Features

<div style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><font size="3">The objective of this project is to identify the full range of possible roadway design features used by transportation agencies on freeways and major arterials to improve travel time reliability, assess their costs, operational effectiveness, and safety, and provide recommendations for their use and eventual incorporation into appropriate design guides. </font><font size="3">Accomplishing the project objective will require a thorough knowledge of geometric design requirements and application; an understanding of how specific conditions affect design and operation of highway systems; alternative economic analysis techniques; and how operational effectiveness and safety are measured and estimated. Where existing effectiveness analysis methods are inadequate, alternative approaches will be needed to generate useful results.</font></div><div style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><strong><font size="3"> </font></strong></div>
