Corridor Analysis Using QRS II Route 9 Case Study

by Jeffrey S. Pechulis, Pioneer Valle Planning Commission, West Springfield, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputers in Transportation

Abstract: This traffic modeling project is part of a larger planning study of the Route 9 corridor through the Town of Hadley and parts of Amherst and Northampton. The Pioneer Valley Planning Comission staff have developed a travel demand forecasting model to evaluate transportation improvements. A gravity model was chosen as the appropriate tool for this travel demand forecasting project. System wide sensitivity is important, especially when evaluating the constraction of a new road or the implementation of intersection control.
