Procedures for Cost Estimation and Management for Highway Projects During Planning, Programming, and Preconstruction

The objective of this research is to develop a guidebook on highway cost estimation management and project cost estimation procedures aimed at achieving greater consistency and accuracy between long-range transportation planning, priority programming, and preconstruction cost estimates. The guidebook should provide appropriate strategies, methods, and tools to develop, track, and document realistic cost estimates during each phase of the process.
