Traffic Analysis and Simulation

The goal of this study is to improve the state-of-the-practice in traffic analysis and simulation so public agencies can make the best possible transportation investment decisions based upon high-quality traffic analyses. The objectives of this study are to assemble regional, State, and local agencies, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to: (1) identify challenges and issues common among those responsible for conducting, managing, and/or approving traffic analysis and simulation studies; (2) suggest approaches to addressing identified issues; (3) initiate and monitor projects intended to address identified challenges and issues; (4) provide guidance and recommendations and disseminate results; (5) provide leadership and coordinate with other agencies, groups, or forums interested in traffic analysis and simulation; and 6) promote and facilitate technology transfer related to traffic analysis and simulation issues nationally.
