Research Brief: Improving Pavement Network Conditions Through Competition
Past CSHub research has shown that increased competition among paving material substitutes is correlated with lower unit prices for both asphalt and concrete. Thus, there is potential for increased competition to increase the amount of paving that can be done in a network for the same amount of investment. In this brief, researchers present results of an analysis showing how increased paving competition and a sophisticated budget allocation model can improve pavement network condition and reduce GHG emissions.
