Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 36-11. Estimating Toll Facility Demand and Revenue

Budget shortfalls and increasing demand for additional roadway facilities have caused State DOTs to seek alternatives to traditional funding sources for transportation projects. Many DOTs are turning to user based fees or tolling as a viable means of paying for roadway improvements and new roadways. To be successful, toll facilities must generate revenues sufficient to cover debt service and other project costs. Experience with this has been quite variable. A major contribution to this variability relates to the methods used to forecast toll facility usage and therefore accurately estimate future revenues from tolling. It is critical for transportation agencies, investors, and bond rating agencies to have reliable means of assessing toll road feasibility.
