PL 38, Develop Measures for Highway Criticality Assessment

Grants and Contracts Details


Traditional highway investment prioritization processes focus on metrics such as safety, congestion, asset condition, as well as benefit-cost analysis. Rural highways, especially rural low volume roads, often receive less attention even though they may be critical to network connectivity and access to services and opportunities in local communities. A mechanism to quantify the strategic importance of roadways to network connectivity and accessibility is needed. This study aims to provide KYTC with a new means to evaluate roadways based on their strategic importance in maintaining rural community connectivity and accessibility. The results can assist KYTC in resource allocation process.
