Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Task 41-03. Engineering Economic Analysis Practices for Highway Investment

Transportation agencies are struggling to strategically allocate their resources to preserve, maintain, and upgrade their highway infrastructure. Application of comprehensive economic analysis to their investment options is critical to their decision making process. There are many transportation agencies that are proficient in integrating economic analysis of their investment options into their asset management strategy using a myriad of tools and processes. However, other agencies lack the resources, guidance and understanding of the usefulness to perform such evaluations. This project will study current practices for performing economic analysis in the United States to evaluate highway investment decisions.
