A consistent approach to setting an impact fee based on transportation planning procedures, highway cost allocation methods, and entropy maximization is described. The necessary state definitions and procedures to determine the most likely allocation of link volumes to developments is developed in this presentation. The use of highway cost allocation and urban transportation planning procedures is described, and several methods of allocating traffic to paths on the network are proposed. An entropy model for path allocation is also described. An example of the methdology to a simplified network of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania urban area is described as an example.
