Production of a Major Update to the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual

The objective of this research was to update the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) 2010 to support, to the extent practical, (1) the performance measure requirements of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), (2) travel time reliability analysis, and (3) ATDM strategy evaluation, while maintaining its support of the more traditional system planning, design, and operations activities. To realize a new HCM 2015, the information in selected HCM chapters will need to be revised to incorporate the aforementioned research results, as adopted by the TRB Highway Capacity and Quality of Service (HCQS) Committee. Any other changes to the HCM identified and approved by this committee should also be incorporated in the updated chapters.
