The Effect of Smart Growth Policies on Travel Demand

The objectives of this project is to determine (1) to what extent smart growth policies can relieve pressure on peak period highway capacity by reducing peak period travel demand, and (2), if there is potential, how many acres of smart growth development are needed to eliminate the need for one freeway or arterial lane in rush hour? (This is a companion of C05, which asks what package of highway management techniques are equivalent to adding a lane in rush hour?)
