Highway cost allocation determines the costs imposed on a highway system by various types of users and compares each group's share of costs to their share of user fees paid. ECONorthwest has participated in the last five biennial Oregon Highway Cost Allocation studies and has developed models that incorporate numerous innovations, allowing both greater accuracy and more flexibility in choosing allocation methods than any competing models.
ECONorthwest also has developed an innovative method for estimating the costs imposed based on the fees that vehicles would pay if efficient-fee pricing were in effect.
