Review of Alternative Approaches to the Highway Cost Allocation Study (HCAS)
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
CPCS developed a whitepaper that considers alternative approaches to update the Highway Cost Allocation Study (HCAS). The study reviewed the last FHWA HCAS, recent State HCASs and approaches to cost allocations in other jurisdictions and industries. CPCS leveraged its knowledge of international examples, including those used in Canada, to examine equity, operating costs, and other measures to advise FHWA on how it might integrate the measures into a future HCAS, if required by Congress.
