Partnership to Develop an Integrated, Advanced Travel Demand Model and a Fine-Grained, Time-Sensitive Network

Highway capacity may be added by managing facilities to achieve greater throughput or by adding lanes. Managing freeway capacity implies inducing motorists to change driving behavior, change in time of day, change in route, and change in mode. If management techniques are successful, throughput actually increases compared to congested conditions. Therefore, highway agencies need to be able to analyze the effects of management strategies. The objectives of this project are to: (1) Work with one or two states or MPOs to operationalize an integrated, advanced travel demand model with a fine-grained, time dependent network (integrated supply-demand model). (2) Incorporate SHRP 2 Capacity products (especially those of project C04 and C05) into the model capabilities. (3) Conduct an extensive series of tests to analyze the performance of the model and time-dependent network. (4) Use the outputs of the integrated model as inputs to EPA's MOVES model for estimation of greenhouse gas emissions.</font></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt 0.25in"><span style="mso-spacerun: yes"><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"></font></span></p>
