Cost Benefit Analysis

After a ten year hiatus from performing federally suggested “cost-benefit” analysis, the Nevada Department of Transportation (under new director Susan Martinovich) released new analysis results during the 2007 legislative session. You can see the worksheet here.

One of the projects, the Boulder City bypass, actually has a negative return on investment and clearly should not be built.

Another revelation: the “I-15 North” project, which was started around the beginning of 2008, ranks lower in priority than the “I-15 South” project. The highest ranked project, US 95, was completed in 2007.
