Assume that, as a part of its economic development program, your governmental agency has committed to provide access to a new regional industrial park. This project must fund the construction of an on/off-interchange from an adjacent highway, a 2-mile length of 4-lane divided roadway, and a bridge that will cross a 500-foot wide river. The entire project is estimated to require 2 years to complete following planning & design.The roadway to be constructed is projected to cost $125,000 per lane mile. It will need to begin construction 12 months prior to the project’s estimated completion date. Your government controls the permitting process for the roadway and has already issued the necessary permits. The total roadway project will be paid for at its completion
