1. The estimated number of individuals transported.
2. The estimated amount, by weight or volume, of freight transported.
3. The number of miles traveled.
4. The number of vehicles and the estimated capacity of those vehicles.
5. The estimated cost per individual moved per mile.
C. These performance measures shall serve as the basis for monitoring and reporting on the performance outcomes of the state's highway system.
D. The division shall develop transportation data collection and reporting methodologies for system performance measures and the major components of the long-range plan. The division shall consult with local, regional and tribal transportation agencies before developing the methodologies.
E. The department shall collect standardized transportation data for all existing components and any proposed projects under consideration for inclusion in the plan developed pursuant to section 28-506 and the five year transportation facilities construction program developed pursuant to section 28-6951.
