Abstract The Capacity focus area of the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) is broadly based on the concept that better consideration of the social, environmental, and economic effects of highway projects as they are planned, programmed, and carried out will result in improved and more rapidly implemented projects. Capacity Project C03 was designed to create a large database of case studies and a web-based tool that allow for more rapid assessment of the long-term economic impacts of highway capacity projects. The main result of the project is that economic impacts can be considered for a greater number of potential projects, and this step can take place earlier in the planning process.
