Wild Animal Benefit-to-Cost Analysis Spreadsheet

This Excel spreadsheet was developed for the benefit-to-cost analysis conducted in the Western Slope Wildlife Prioritization Study. This spreadsheet should be utilized for planning only. The calculations do not imply or provide any approval for grant funding and/or safety funding. Requests for grant funding and safety funding will still need to be completed through the process governed by CDOT via DTD and the Traffic & Safety Engineering Branch, respectively. For more information please see the WSWPS Final Report (CDOT 2019-01).
