This paper presents a priority analysis scheme for ranking highway improvement projects. The procedure is based on a scoring model approach that evaluates highway projects in terms of as many as 26 parameters that are divided into eight groups: need, deficiency, continuity, benefit-cost, local opinion, and economic, social, and environmental consequences. For each project, the individual parameters are evaluated and combined through a set of weighting factors into one or two indexes that can then be used to rank the projects. The selection of parameters and a set of weighting factors was determined from responses to questionnaires distributed to state transportation board members, Department of Transportation officials, and regional and local planners within the State of Georgia. The improvement projects are categorized according to 10 functional classes and nine improvement types. The projects are ranked within each category.
