An Examination and Presentation of Travel in Sussex County

Sussex County needs to be the focus of a comprehensive compilation and presentation of available travel and demographic data including origins and destinations, projections and their impacts, trip purpose, employment, seasonal variation, and trip generation. Available population projections also need to be examined in terms of future impact to areas in Sussex County. The Delaware Transportation Monitoring System, the National Travel Survey, and the Census 2000 CTPP are among practically untapped data sources. These together with Travel Demand Forecasting outputs, traffic studies, and traffic counts could provide a vital resource for planning and understanding for the public. Methods for dissemination of travel demand and traffic count information need to be developed.
