Determining Highway Maintenance Costs
TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 688: Determining Highway Maintenance Costs presents a process for determining a highway agency’s full costs associated with performing highway maintenance.
The process described in the report can be applied to any specific maintenance activity and is designed to help ensure that the resulting full cost incorporates a fair share of both maintenance program and enterprise support costs.
The report also documents the application of the full-cost determination process for a number of highway agencies and different maintenance activities to demonstrate the types of options, exceptions, and decisions that would be needed in order to perform the full-cost calculation.
