Performance-Based Analysis of Geometric Design of Highways and Streets

The objective of this project is to develop a guide for performance-based analysis of geometric design throughout the development of a project. The guide should identify existing tools for estimating performance and illustrate their use. Further, the guide should describe additional tools or enhancements to existing tools needed for estimating performance and a plan for developing them.
