Wyoming Low-Volume Roads Traffic Volume Estimation

The purpose of this project is to develop models for estimating traffic volumes on Wyoming's rural low-volume roads. The project proposes two phases. The first phase will develop model(s) to estimate traffic which will be calibrated with traffic data collected in 2012 on county roads in Converse, Goshen, Laramie and Platte Counties with Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) traffic counts on secondary state roads within these four counties. The estimates generated by these models will be verified using additional traffic count data from southeastern Wyoming. The second phase will expand the use of the models to the rest of Wyoming. The effectiveness of the models will be verified on county and secondary state roads in selected areas. The goals of this project are to develop a model that will estimate low-volume roads' traffic volumes and characteristics and generate a sample plan which will provide the necessary inputs for the traffic estimation model.
