Optimized Development of Urban Transportation Networks

This project seeks to develop general-purpose methods for optimizing the selection, sequencing, and scheduling of interrelated improvement projects in transportation networks, with special emphasis on relatively dense urban networks. Such urban networks typically experience considerable congestion, have closely spaced intersections and can serve multiple modes having synergistic as well as competitive relations. The methodologies proposed in this work should also be applicable to other prioritization problems with interrelated alternatives, which abound in transportation and other fields, such as industrial engineering, operations research, communications and finance.
