A STUDY OF COSTS ON VARIOUS TYPES OF HIGHWAYS

A DISCUSSION IS PRESENTED OF THE VARIOUS ITEMS THAT MAKE UP THE COST OF HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION, INCLUDING ROADWAY COSTS, VEHICLE OPERATING COSTS, AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO ROAD FUNDS THROUGH GASOLINE TAXES AND LICENSE FEES. ON THE BASIS OF AVERAGE VALUES FOR THE DIFFERENT ITEMS, A TABLE IS PRESENTED SHOWING THE RELATIONS BETWEEN OPERATING COSTS, TAX CONTRIBUTIONS, AND ANNUAL ROADWAY COSTS FOR VARIOUS TRAFFIC VOLUMES ON THE THREE TYPES OF ROADS. AN ANNUAL TRAFFIC OF 675,000 VEHICLES APPARENTLY CONTRIBUTES ENOUGH THROUGH TAXES, ON THE AVERAGE, TO PAY THE ANNUAL COST OF A HIGH-TYPE ROAD. /AUTHOR/
