Priority Ranking Tool

The Priority Ranking Tool provides a priority ranking of sites and proposed improvement projects based on the benefit and cost estimates determined by the economic appraisal tool. The priority ranking tool can compare the benefits and costs of projects across sites and rank those projects on the basis of cost effectiveness, benefit–cost ratio, net benefits, safety benefits, construction cost, number of total accidents reduced, number of fatal and severe injury accidents reduced, and number of fatal and all injury accidents reduced. This allows users to fund projects in priority order, with the highest ranked projects being funded first. The priority ranking tool also has the ability to determine an optimal set of projects to maximize net benefits.
