National Costs of the Metropolitan ITS Infrastructure: Update to the FHWA 1995 Report, 2nd Revision. Working Paper

This working paper has been prepared to provide new estimates of the costs to deploy Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) infrastructure elements in the largest metropolitan areas in the United States. It builds upon estimates that were distributed in June 1995 by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Since 1995, new sources of ITS cost estimates have appeared. Hence, it is now useful to determine whether the national deployment cost estimate has changed appreciably. The working paper reflects the cost estimates to deploy ITS infrastructure based on 2000 deployment values. Updates to this working paper coincide with the results from tracking the deployment of ITS in the United States. To date deployment tracking data are available for 1997, 1999, and 2000. The original working paper (dated September 1999) was written to update the 1995 cost estimate using the 1997 deployment tracking results. Since that time, deployment tracking results from 1999 have become available and incorporated into the first revision of this working paper (dated August 2000). The first update was in the form of an addendum to the original document. With the 2000 deployment tracking data now available, it is time to update the national deployment cost estimate. This second revision of the working paper will be again in the form of an addendum and can be found at the end of the original report.
