In recent years various optimization techniques and algorithms have been used as a basis for traffic assignment. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the use of a weak form of the discrete maximum principle to obtain the optimum traffic assignment to a street network. The technique is presented in the solution of a relatively simple problem involving a rectangular system with linear time functions. Linear turn penalties are also included in the formulation.
