Oklahoma Room
U.S. Department of Transportation

This workshop provides an introduction to benefit/cost analysis for transportation infrastructure. There is growing emphasis on the use of benefit/cost analysis for evaluating transportation projects funded by discretionary federal transportation programs. The workshop begins with an overview of benefit/cost analysis and a discussion of the differences between benefit/cost analysis and economic impact analysis. Other topics include job creation and real estate investment benefits, and measuring the benefits of the U.S. Department of Transportation's strategic goals — safety, livable communities, state-of-good-repair, economic competitiveness, and environmental sustainability. The workshop concludes with a presentation on measuring costs and a summary of the day.
