SECTION IV Index of Strategies by Implementation Timeframe and Relative Cost Exhibit IV-1 classifies strategies according to the expected timeframe and relative cost for this emphasis area. The implementation time will be dependent upon such factors as the agency's procedures, the extent of the education and enforcement program, roadway-section length, street width, and other factors. The range of costs may also vary for some of these strategies due to many of these same factors. Cost ranges are given in the detailed description of each strategy. A strategy may include several treatments, with different costs and timeframes. The table is meant to reflect the most common application of each strategy.
