ECONOMIC ANALYSIS FOR HIGHWAYS

THE UNIVERSAL ASPECTS OF HIGHWAYS, THE ACCUMULATION OF HIGHWAY NEEDS, THE LIMITS ON CONTRUCTION FUNDS, AND THE WIDESPREAD CONCERN OF PRACTICALLY EVERY CITIZEN GIVE HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION A NATURAL AND COMPELLING POSITION IN TRANSPORTATION. THIS POSITION DEMANDS CLOSE AND EXPERT ATTENTION TO THE ECONOMY AND TO THE GENERAL SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF HIGHWAYS. THIS BOOK IS DESIGNED TO SERVE THESE PURPOSES THROUGH MAKING AVAILABLE TO THE PRACTICING ENGINEERS, ECONOMISTS, AND ANALYSTS A SOURCE OF THEORY, PROCEDURES, AND APPLIED DATA. IT IS THE AIM OF THIS BOOK TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARD A BETTER UNDERSTANDING AND APPLICATION OF ECONOMIC ANALYSIS AS A DECISION-MAKING TOOL. ALTHOUGH THIS BOOK STRESSES ECONOMIC ANALYSIS ON A PROJECT BASIS, THE SAME PRINCIPLES, METHODS, CONCEPTS, AND COST AND BENEFIT DATA APPLY EQUALLY WELL TO ANALYSES OF HIGHWAY SYSTEMS. THE MAIN DIFFERENCES LIE IN THE SELECTION OF THE INPUT DATA. /AUTHOR/
