Traffic and expenditures on Arizona state highways by Eric Matranga( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using Arizona Department of Transportation data, this study examines the distribution of expenditures, revenues and vehicle utilization of Arizona's state highways from 1986-1998. Three measures are used to evaluate the distribution of highway infrastructure spent over this period: 1) the ratio of revenue generated per vehicle mile; 2) the ratio of the number of vehicle miles generated per expenditure dollar; and 3) the revenue dollars generated per expenditure dollar
Analysis of bonding vs. "pay-as-you-go" financing : final report by Matthew Rowell( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The decision to bond or to pay-as-you-go must be made on a case-by-case basis where all of the relevant concerns are taken into consideration. Research has allowed us to develop the following general conclusions: The interest cost of bonding is not outweighed by the effects of inflation. nterest payments impose a real cost on bond issuers. Continual bonding may result in there being less funds available for other uses, but this effect may be outweighed by the benefits bonding affords. The principal benefit of bonding is that it allows projects to be completed sooner
The cost effectiveness and magnitude of potential impact of various congestion management measures by Matthew Rowell( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phoenix and Tucson are "non-attainment" areas under the Environmental Protection Agency's air quality guidelines. Vehicle traffic is the main man-made source of the region's air quality problems. Various methods for reducing the vehicular contribution to air pollution are constantly under consideration and debate. The potential impact on air quality of each measure varies. Each measure also has a different price associated with it. The purpose of this report is to provide policy makers with a guide to options that are available to reduce congestion that may lead to a more cost-effective program for reducing vehicle generated air pollution
The value of Arizona's state highway system : a corporate-style financial analysis : final report by Nadia Mansour( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Government agencies and private sector corporations tend to approach financial reporting in different ways. Presenting government agency financial information using corporate-style reporting would accomplish two specific goals. First, it might provide a more economically sound picture of the financial status of governmental undertakings. The private sector approaches issues of subsidization, revenue generation, depreciation, inflation, etc., in a different way than governments generally do. Using private sector techniques will, therefore, present a different perspective on the financial status of the state highway system than is currently reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation. Secondly, because legislators, the media and the general public are more familiar with private sector financial reporting, presenting government data in a similar fashion may improve communication between government agencies and these groups
The value of the RARF Freeway System : a corporate-style financial analysis by Jason Carey( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report uses foundation and format developed in Phase I of SPR 475; the Value of Arizona's State Highway System: A Corporate-Style Financial Analysis", report number FHWA-AZ-99-475(1); and adapts it to measure the financial performance of the Maricopa County freeways funded by the Regional Area Road Fund (RARF). The basic findings of this research can be summarized as follows: Under the assumptions of corporate-style accounting, the RARF freeway system has operated at a substantial loss over the past 12 years; These losses are projected to continue through the Maricopa Association of Governments system life cycle build-out in 2007; The average returns earned by the RARF Freeway System over the last five years lag those of other transportation and capital-intensive industries
Estimating the cost of overweight vehicle travel on Arizona highways by Sandy H Straus( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study quantifies state highway damage on the basis of the impacts of overweight vehicles. Each year, millions of dollars of damage associated with life span, design, and maintenance of state highways and structures are attributed to vehicles that exceed state weight limits. Our best guess is that overweight vehicles impose somewhere between $12 million and $53 million per year in uncompensated damages to Arizona roadways. Arizona currently budgets about $5.8 million per year for mobile enforcement efforts aimed at, among other things, penalizing and deterring overweight vehicle operations. If a doubling of the mobile enforcement budget were 50% effective toward the objective of eliminating illegally overweight vehicles from Arizona roadways, the savings from avoided pavement damage would range from $6 million to $27 million per year. At the lower figure, the expansion of mobile enforcement would be a little better than a "break-even" proposition. The savings from avoided pavement damage would slightly exceed the cost of the program. Any safety gains from detecting and taking out-of-service vehicles with safety deficiencies would come on top of the pavement damage avoidance gains. At the higher figure, the expansion of mobile enforcement would have about a four- or five-to-one benefit/cost ratio. That is, for every dollar invested in motor carrier enforcement efforts, there would be $4.50 in pavement damage avoided. Furthermore, the authors introduce a new truck lane design that may ultimately improve safety and optimize pavement usage in Arizona and other states
