  • Project location - The road must have a "free" alternate route.
  • Project feasibility - The road must have a high probability of being able to start construction within a reasonable time frame.
  • Local support - The road should have demonstrated local support or a reasonable expectation of support for development as a toll facility.
  • Financial feasibility - The road should be deemed to be financially feasible using available data and commercially reasonable assumptions.
  • Statewide or regional significance - Special consideration should be given to those projects that would play a significant role in the statewide or regional highway system or serve major economic generators.
