This report documents the research underway at the Utah Traffic Lab (UTL) that will contribute to the development of the user cost manual. This study evaluates the impact of various work zone scenarios caused by roadway rehabilitation projects in Utah. The results for different scenarios are tabulated to construct the Road User Cost (RUC) look-up tables. These tables will assist UDOT for faster contracting and project delivery purposes.
