National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and Special Projects Support: Analytical Travel Forecasting Approaches for Project Level Planning and Design

The objective of this research is to develop a guidebook describing methods, data sources and procedures for producing travel forecasts for highway project-level analysis. The guidebook should evaluate and expand currently used methods and tools to include appropriate data or information sources and system-level methods (ranging from readily available practices to advanced practices) to address a variety of project development purposes, needs and impacts. The guidebook is intended to be used by transportation planning, operations and project development staff to better support planning, design and operations recommendations.
