This Reference is designed to introduce transportation practitioners to the underlying economic realities of their profession. Good engineering judgment, which is vital to defensible and optimal decision-making, relies on good economic judgment.
The book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners and graduate students in transportation. The book is divided into three main parts: planning, operations, and design.
