Abstract

As agricultural production increased, traffic demand has also increased dramatically. Therefore, the State of South Dakota faces the dilemma of increased demands upon roads and limited financial ability to support them. A sound transportation system will have certain properties such as the capability to meet essential needs, provide maximum service with minimum miles, offer service consistency, allow stability in planning, financing, and concentration of improvements, and to contribute to efficient management. [30]
To contribute toward achieving these desired properties, the objectives of this study are:
1. Evaluate the relative economic efficiency of existing and several alternative rural road networks within a South Dakota county, and
2. Develop a model which can be used to evaluate rural road networks.
