Major Investment Studies

A major investment study (MIS) is undertaken when the need for a major investment that involves significant federal funding is identified. Each MIS is required to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of alternative investments or strategies in attaining the local, state, and national goals and objectives. The analysis must consider the direct and indirect costs of reasonable alternatives; the social, economic and environmental effects; operating efficiencies; land use and economic development impacts; and energy consumption.

Most MISs involve the analysis of a number of alternatives in an effort to find the strategy that is most cost-effective and efficient to serve projected travel and is environmentally and publicly acceptable. Traffic data requirements for MISs are similar to those required in the advanced planning alternative analysis and environmental documentation.
