Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Site Impact Traffic Assessment: Problems and Solutions


This paper covers experience gained in using traffic network models as a site traffic analysis tool, including problems encountered in developing an appropriate zone system and coded highway network that are compatible with turn movements; approaches to future forecasting (e.g., factoring between base and future movements; 'distributing' link approach volumes versus using explicitly calculated turn movements); and automating data transfer between the network model output and level of service (LOS) analysis software.
