Betterments almost always have higher initial costs, but these are offset by lower future repair costs.
Develop a detailed cost estimate of the repair in-kind alternative and the Betterment alternative. The cost estimates should include all costs to develop and construct the alternatives.
The cost of the Betterment is determined by the following formula:
|Total project cost including the Betterment||-||Total project cost without the Betterment||=||Betterment Cost|
