PRIORITIZING INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS FOR CMAQ FUNDING
This paper discusses the development of a practical analytical procedure to evaluate and prioritize candidate CMAQ projects completed for the South East Texas Regional Planning Commission, the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Beaumont/Port Arthur, Texas area. The proposed transportation improvements are prioritized based on their ability to reduce traffic congestion, vehicle delays, and vehicle emissions along with the overall cost of the candidate projects. Because the justification for CMAQ funding eligibility is a reduction in mobile source emissions, the main component of the prioritization procedure is the determination of reduced mobile source emissions resulting from the proposed transportation improvements.
