Prioritization Process

Prioritization Process a System for Evaluating Projects

The OKI 2050 Regional Transportation Plan Project Prioritization Process has been recognized as a “Best Practices by FHWA.” The OKI Board and the OKI Intermodal Coordinating Committee (ICC) approve the process periodically.

The process is a systematic approach to ranking the numerous projects to be evaluated in developing a financially constrained regional transportation plan. The process makes best use of available data and points of emphasis in the federal transportation bill. Maintenance projects are not individually listed since they are of high importance and assumed to be part of the plan and accounted for in fiscal analyses.

Several criteria are evaluated in the OKI 2050 Regional Transportation Plan Project Prioritization Process (PDF).

A summary of the types of criteria used includes:

  • Level of Service (LOS)
  • Air Quality/Energy
  • Average Daily Traffic (ADT)
  • Complete Streets/Multimodal/Intermodal
  • Corridor Study/Comprehensive Plan
  • Economic Vitality
  • Environmental Impact
  • Environmental Justice
  • Facility Type
  • Feasibility
  • Freight Mode Specific Traffic Flow
  • Freight Volumes
  • Impact on Roadway Congestion
  • Local Priority
  • Public Transportation Ridership Impact
  • Safety/Security
  • Timing and Analysis Level
