Program Effectiveness Measures

The planned performance measure for refuge roads is the change in the condition of roads and bridges as measured by the Road and Bridge Inventory systems. Besides this degree of improvement shown for FWS Regions in the annual Road Inventory Program (RIP) condition surveys, the ratio of administrative costs to construction costs, and the average cost per mile for projects in each Region will be used by FWS and FHWA to measure how efficiently and effectively each Region operates its program.
