The second objective is to explore the options of updating the Department’s Generalized level of service (LOS) Tables, to have them to closer in line with the latest HCM 6, and the optimal methodology of evaluating/reporting new type of facilities such as managed lanes, and to update the contents of the Generalized LOS Tables.
