TRS: Life Cycle Cost of Local Roads

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  10/10/2019


In 2006, the LRRB produced a video Roads and Loads: Finding a Balance. Although this video did a very good job of providing general information; it did not provide any hard costs or economic data. Minnesota local agencies seek guidance on how to calculate life cycle cost analyses (LCCA) and communicate the cost of maintaining roads/streets to the general public and elected officials. As taxpayers, it would be beneficial if residents understood the life cycle of a roadway, what maintenance is required maintenance that is needed over the road's lifetime, how much each treatment costs and how their taxes are being used.
