White Papers for Right-Sizing Transportation Investments

View Cover




While not all right-sizing projects involve a change in jurisdictional responsibility and ownership, jurisdictional transfer can be a key tool for implementing right-sizing plans and agreements.

As a supplemental document to NCHRP Research Report 917: Right-Sizing Transportation Investments:A Guidebook for Planning and Programming, the TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 263: White Papers for Right-Sizing Transportation Investments offers practical examples of the current state of the practice. These examples are instructive for developing a roadmap of how agencies can and should approach the role of jurisdictional transfers within competing right-sizing scenarios. In addition, these examples provide assistance to state DOTs and other transportation agencies in implementing the comprehensive approach documented in the Guidebook, as they address critical issues in financing transportation infrastructure.
