Question

b. This 2-mile length of 4-lane divided roadway 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. Assuming a discount rate of 4.25% and monthly compounding, what amount will need to be funded today

    Green County is planning to construct a bridge across the south branch of Carey Creek to facilitate traffic flow though Clouser Canyon. The first cost for the bridge will be $9,500,000. Annual maintenance and repairs the first year of operation, estimated to be $10,000, are expected to increase by $1000 each year thereafter. In addition to regular maintenance, every 5 years the roadway will be resurfaced at a cost of $750,000, and the structure must be painted every 3 years at a cost of $100,000. If Green County uses 5% as its cost of money and the bridge is expected to last for 20 years, what is the EUAC?

  • A toll bridge across the Mississippi River is being considered as a replacement for the current I-40 bridge linking Tennessee to Arkansas. Because this bridge, if approved, will become a part of the U.S. Interstate Highway system, the B–C ratio method must be applied in the evaluation. Investment costs of the structure are estimated to be $17,500,000, and $325,000 per year in operating and maintenance costs are anticipated. In addition, the bridge must be resurfaced every fifth year of its 30-year projected life at a cost of $1,250,000 per occurrence (no resurfacing cost in year 30). Revenues generated from the toll are anticipated to be $2,500,000 in its first year of operation, with a projected annual rate of increase of 2.25 % per year due to the anticipated annual increase in traffic across the bridge. Assuming zero market (salvage) value for the bridge at the end of 30 years and aMARR of 10% per year, should the toll bridge be constructed ?
    The city of Peachtree is comparing the following two plans for supplying water to a newly developed subdivision:1 Plan A will manage requirements for the next 15 years; at the end of thatperiod, the initial cost of $1,500,000 will have to be doubled to meet the requirements of subsequent years. The facilities installed in years 0 and15 may be considered permanent; however, certain supporting equipmentwill have to be replaced every 30 years from the installation dates at a costof $200,000. Operating costs are $91,000 a year for the first 15 years and$182,000 thereafter. Beginning in the 21st year, they will increase by $3,000a year.2 Plan B will supply all requirements for water indefinitely into the future,although it will operate at only half capacity for the first 15 years. Annualcosts over this period will be $105,000 and will increase to $155,000 beginning in the 16th year. The initial cost of Plan Bis $1,950,000; the facilities can be considered permanent, although it will be…
    The Transportation Service Directorate of a Municipality wants to purchase a newsoftware system to charge and track toll fees. The director wants to know the total capitalized cost ofthe software system. The system has an initial installment cost of 150 000 pbr and an additional cost of50 000 pbr after 10 years. Annual software maintenance cost is 8000 pbr and starts at year five. Inaddition, there is expected to be a recurring major upgrade cost of 15000 pbr every 13 years. Assumethat i=5% per year. If the new system will be used for the indefinite future, draw the cash flowdiagram and find the capitalized cost of the investment.
