In this study, we present a methodology for estimating full marginal transportation costs of highway transportation in New Jersey. This methodology is specifically applied to the northern New Jersey highway network. We review the existing studies and identify the highway transportation cost categories. Cost functions are developed using New Jersey-specific data for each cost category. Along with the total cost functions, marginal costs functions are derived. These marginal cost functions are used in the application of our full marginal cost estimation methodology. Finally, the resulting marginal cost values for northern New Jersey are analyzed according to various trips distances, urbanization degrees, and highway functional types.
