Abstract

In the long run, there will be changes in the population, socio-economic factors, land-use, etc. within a region. To cope with these changes, it will be necessary to improve the transportation network and alter the tolls, if any, accordingly over time. In this study, we extend the current technique in network design as a static, one-time event to an approach that explicitly captures the time dimension in the network design problem. Thus, we can make optimal decisions on project initiation time, scaling, and phasing in accordance to the design objectives. Through a small network example, we demonstrated that a well-planned, sequential upgrade plan performs better than any one-time network improvements. Copyright ASCE 2006.
