ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF ROADWAY OCCUPANCY FOR FREEWAY PAVEMENT MAINTENANCE AND REHABILITATION. VOLUME 2. USERS MANUAL

A computer program was developed to perform an Economic Analysis of Roadway Occupancy for Maintenance and Rehabilitation EAROMAR. The user specifies the pavement design and traffic. The program generates hourly traffic volume by trip purpose, direction and year; vehicle operational cost as a function of vehicle weight, speed and project design alignment; value of time by trip purpose, income level and time loss, and annual workload by activity. The influence of roadway occupancy on the motorist is executed hourly for each activity and lane closure. The resulting operational, time, accident and pollution impacts are combined for all feasible closures including - traffic detours and crossovers. A 10-mile section of eight-lane portland cement concrete was analyzed over 20 years.
