A systems engineering approach is used to propose and develop a methodology and mathematical model for identifying the most critical links of a highway system. There are two main benefits for using the methodology and mathematical model. The first is that it provides analysts a platform for developing efficient models pertinent to highway link criticality. The second is that it helps city officials and decision makers with the analysis and planning process involving the highway system's most critical links. The analysis and planning process includes everything from emergency contingency plans to risk analysis and mitigation.
