Estimating the Life-Cycle Cost of Intersection Designs

Estimating the Life-Cycle Cost of Intersection Designs

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP ) Web-Only Document 220: Estimating the Life-Cycle Cost of Intersection Designs describes the Life-Cycle Cost Estimation Tool (LCCET). The LCCET spreadsheet allows users to compare alternative intersection designs based on initial construction costs, ongoing maintenance and operations costs, operational efficiencies for a variety of modes, safety effects, and emissions. Alternative designs include roundabouts and traditional intersections using stop signs and traffic signals. Use of the tool is designed to help provide a consistent approach to these comparisons based on benefits and costs.

The Life-Cycle Cost Estimation Tool is available for download. Complementary products to the LCCET and Web-Only Document include the following:
