Alternative designs should address key impacts such as equity and traffic impacts. Planning refers to the process of deciding what to do and how to do it. Planning occurs at many levels, from day-to-day decisions made by individuals and families, to complex decisions made by businesses and governments.

If meeting design standards is deemed to be infeasible for a given location, then alternatives should be developed and evaluated. The alternatives should be devised in a way that strives to balance safety, mobility, cost, and impacts.

Once developed, each alternative should be evaluated in terms of these considerations, and its. There is an alternative to increased highway capacity to the core, however: peak-hour highway demand could be cut instead.

This could be done in three ways: (1) staggering work hours so the rush is spread over a longer period and fewer people try to enter at the same time; (2) dispersing jobs from the center; and (3) encouraging drivers to.The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) introduced the concept of life-cycle cost-benefit analysis in its “Red Book” in The LCCA was introduced for highway investment decisions, and as such, formed the notion of economic evaluation of highway upgrades during the planning by:
