A METHOD FOR COMPUTING ANNUAL USER COSTS FOR ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENTS IS DESCRIBED WHICH TAKES INTO CONSIDERATION THE EFFECT OF TRAFFIC CONDITIONS OVER THE ENTIRE YEAR. THE DISTRIBUTION OF TRAFFIC VOLUMES OVER TIME IS USED TO ESTABLISH A TRAFFIC SPEED FOR DETERMINING UNIT COSTS OF VEHICLE OPERATION AND TRAVEL TIME. THE METHOD CAN BE APPLIED TO PROPOSED ROUTE LOCATIONS WHERE PROJECTED TRAFFIC VOLUMES ARE KNOWN. /AUTHOR/
