Weisbrod and Landau Present at TRB Webinar on Airport Improvements

On October 10, 2013, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) conducted a webinar that featured research conducted by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) about decision-making processes and tools for evaluating options for airport improvement projects, as well as assessment techniques for conducting benefit-costs analyses.

EDR Group's Glen Weisbrod and Steve Landau presented ACRP Synthesis 13: Effective Practices for Preparing Airport Improvement Program Benefit – Cost Analysis. Glen and Steve described successful assessment techniques that can be used by airports in performing benefit-cost analyses (BCAs) for hard-to-quantify benefits from projects needing more than $5 million in airport improvement program (AIP) discretionary funding. The synthesis includes a literature review, review of BCAs submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for AIP funding, and an evaluation and summary of successful practices.
