The objective of the study was to upgrade the publication titled, Energy and Transportation Systems. The most recent data for establishing factors for calculating direct and indirect energy usage on a highway improvement project were incorporated into a new report. Energy analysis and updated factors are discussed separately for recycling asphalt-concrete pavements and for light-rail sytems. A new criterion for impact was developed and life-cycle costing is discussed. The computer program for performing an energy analysis on a highway project has been expanded and improved.
