The vertical axis measures percent changes from -10 to 10 in increments of 5 percent. The horizontal axis measures average annual grade separation investment in millions of 2000 dollars for five types of costs. For travel time costs, the percent change is 6 at $150 mil, 4 at $200 mil, 3 at $250 mil, less than 1 at $300 mil, -3 at $350 mil, -4 at $400 mil, and -6 at $450 mil. For vehicle operating costs, the percent change is 7 at $150 mil, 5 at $200 mil, 3 at $250 mil, less than 1 at $300 mil, -3 at $350 mil, -5 at $400 mil, and -7 at $450 mil. For emissions costs, the percent change is 7 at $150 mil, 5 at $200 mil, 3 at $250 mil, less than 1 at $300 mil, -4 at $350 mil, -5 at $400 mil, and -7 at $450 mil. For safety costs, the percent change is between 0 and -1 at $150 mil, -1 at $200 mil, -1 at $250 mil, -1 at $300 mil, -2 at $350 mil, -2 at $400 mil, and -4 at $450 mil.
