An Open-Source Traffic Assignment Tool for Assessing the Effects of Roadway Pricing and Crash Reduction Strategies on Recurring and Non-Recurring Congestion

This research will provide transportation planners and engineers with a rigorous and computationally efficient tool to access corridor and network wide effects of road pricing and crash reduction strategies on recurring and non-recurring congestion, using performance measures that can be directly applied in investment-level planning and decision-making process. The work scope and plan includes incorporating the ability to simulate the effects of non-recurring events on network performance into the Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) Lite tool or any other tool, is not a trivial matter, particularly in a stochastic and time sensitive environment. The research team is nevertheless confident in its ability to add this capability which builds upon our joint efforts in this arena as part of the SHRP2 C05 project.
