Status:  Complete
Report Date:  05/21/2012


Researchers evaluated highway cost allocation methodologies, used this evaluation to customize the FHWA's HCA tool for Minnesota purposes, and performed HCA studies using both the FHWA tool and the Minnesota-centric tools. Researchers also evaluated the best tax structures for equitably collecting revenue and a method for optimizing the pricing of heavy vehicle special permits. Results showed that heavy vehicle users are not taxed proportionately to their impacts on Minnesota roads.
