FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAY SYSTEMS

DEVELOPMENT OF MODIFIED BENEFIT/COST INDICES FOR HIGHWAY SYSTEMS IS PRESENTED AS A POTENTIAL AID IN MAKING ADMINISTRATIVE DECISIONS. FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS DEVELOPMENT INCLUDE SUCH AREAS AS VIEWPOINT, DETERMINATION OF COST RESPONSIBILITIES FOR USERS AND NON-USERS AND BETWEEN CLASSES OF USERS, AND VARIOUS METHODS FOR MEASURING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF IMPLEMENTATION OF ACTIONS. ALTHOUGH DEVELOPING A METHODOLOGY TO INSURE AN EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OF HIGHWAY FUNDS IS DIFFICULT, THE PROPOSED INDICES WILL PROVE VALUABLE AS A USEFUL TOOL TO AID HIGHWAY MANAGEMENT. /AUTHOR/
