Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 59. Evaluate the Interactions between Transportation-Related Particulate Matter, Ozone, Air Toxics, Climate Change, and Other Air Pollutant Control Strategies

<div>The purpose of this research is to identify cost-effective transportation strategies that will reduce multiple pollutants so that state officials can achieve the goals of contributing towards attainment of various air quality standards, as well as reducing toxics and GHG emissions. This research involves doing a literature search on the methodologies for determining the cost-effectiveness of strategies to reduce multiple pollutants to determine the state-of-the-art, and a survey of state efforts to determine the current state-of-the-practice. The outcome of this research would establish the feasibility of a more detailed, rigorous NCHRP study to examine these effects. That study would likely require different types of modeling (traffic, emissions, dispersion, etc).<br /><br /></div>
