: A considerable amount of research has been conducted on the performance of project delivery methods and applications in project development within the transportation industry. However, decision makers are still seeking a trusted decision model that considers all options and impacts of risk needed for successful project delivery. This study developed a comprehensive multicriteria decision making (MCDM) model capable of evaluating and choosing the most effective project assessment tool for measuring the success of project delivery performance and outcomes. A case study approach was adopted to explore and assess the assessment tools and innovative processes that are used in the development phase within transportation project life cycle phases. A scenario analysis technique was applied, and 62 subjectmatter experts from the transportation industry were interviewed. The data they provided were quantified, and they validated the study results. The results ranked the VE-RACRDAM as the most important project assessment alternative. This study significantly contributes to project management knowledge, decision modeling, project development, and delivery success. D
