Process for Analyzing “Stand-Alone” Projects and Integrating

Project No: 80165

Target Completion Date: March 18, 2008 Environment, Planning, and Economics

About the project:

Limited federal and state revenues have made transportation projects that can be funded from other sources more attractive. These projects, known as stand-alone projects include proffers, county-led bond projects, and projects performed in response to a zoning change. However, county, regional, and state planners do not have a formal manner for evaluating proposed stand-alone projects quickly, which may be problematic for proffers and other projects the require a short response time. Thus, there is the risk that Virginia’s transportation system will be comprised of ad-hoc stand-alone projects that are not necessarily fully integrated. 

The investigators propose to develop a methodology for quickly evaluating stand-alone projects. The methodology shall be comprised of analytical tools or data that can be applied within a given time period, usually 60 days, by local, regional, or state planners to evaluate stand-alone project proposals.

This research need was originally suggested by the Transportation Planning Research Advisory Committee (TPRAC).
