8     Sec. 2705-590. Roadbuilding criteria; life-cycle cost
9 analysis.
10     (a) As used in this Section, "life-cycle cost" means the
11 total of the cost of the initial project plus all anticipated
12 future costs over the life of the pavement. Actual, relevant
13 data, and not assumptions or estimates, shall be used to the
14 extent such data has been collected.
15     (b) The Department shall develop and implement a life-cycle
16 cost analysis for each State road project under its

14 historical and comparable data for equivalent designs from
15 states with similar climates, soil structures, or vehicle
16 traffic.
