Life Cycle Cost Analysis and Discount Rate on Pavements for the Colorado Department of Transportation

This report provides information on life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) as applied to the Colorado Department of Transportation's (CDOT's) roadways. It describes the methodology CDOT uses to select discount rates to be used in LCCA calculations. It also summarizes pavement selection terminology for deterministic and probabilistic LCCA procedures. The discount rate is a major input for calculating an LCCA, which is used in selecting pavement types or rehabilitation strategies.
