Development of a Comprehensive Metric for Transportation, Environment, and Community Health

This research develops a comprehensive metric that enables transportation planners and analysts to evaluate the impact of a transportation project on the environment and community health. The metric consists of transportation, environment, and community health as three different dimensions. Each dimension has a few identified criteria. Each criterion may further be described by several quantitative and qualitative indicators. A concept map has been used to visualize the relationships between the criteria, within and between the dimensions. The metric is a flexible template where criteria and indicators may be added to meet the needs of a transportation project. The applications of the metric have been demonstrated in 2 case studies.
