ICU—A Method of Analyzing Signalized Intersections
There is a need for decision makers, developers and the public to understand the potential traffic impacts of site development. Signalized intersection operations are a primary indicator...

Site Impact Analysis Using the Tranplan Computer Model
As the cost of infrastructure improvements continue to spiral upward local and state governments are finding it more difficult to provide for increases in traffic volumes due to growth...

Traffic Impact Study for a Regional Shopping Center at a Basque City. A European View
A 45,000 m2 GLA Regional Shopping Center has been designed in close proximity to a thruway diamond interchange. Peak-hour generation was estimated and detailed analyses were performed...

Network Model Analysis of Traffic Patterns Resulting from a Proposed Regional Mall
A comparison was made between two methods of traffic impact analysis of a proposed regional shopping mall in Keene, New Hampshire. One study was prepared for the developer using conventional...

Arizona's Uniform Traffic Impact Procedures
This paper discusses the development of policies and detailed uniform guidelines for traffic impact analysis of proposed developments along Arizona State highways. The paper addresses:...

Traffic Impact Analysis Standardization—The Orange County, California Experience
Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) procedures can vary significantly from one agency to another. In Orange County, many cities and the county have adopted their own specialized techniques and...

Using Computer Models in Site Impact Assessment
Use of comprehensive large area traffic models (citywide or regional) in site traffic impact assessment can greatly aid certain elements of the analysis, but may be inappropriate for other...

Computerized Transportation Planning Models for Site Impact Analysis: Precision or Complexity?
Computer based travel forecasting models are now being widely used in the analysis of the traffic impacts of proposed developments. They are commonly used to identify improvements needed...

Shouldn't it be Transportation Impact Assessment?
A Traffic Impact Assessment is a single mode analytical tool that is used to evaluate new development proposals. Its use continues at a time when the transportation community is being...

This paper describes the steps taken in developing innovative traffic-related solutions to obtain approval for the Marriott Corporation International Headquarters site, which is planned...

Traffic Impact Study Ingredients
The elements, information sources, and format appropriate for traffic impact studies are described. The types of traffic impact studies discussed include regional modeling studies, municipal-wide...

Development Impact Assessment with Transportation Models
The use of microcomputers in urban transportation modeling is having a major impact on the traffic engineering and planning profession. Between the late 1950's and early 1980's, most modelling...

Three-Dimensional Eulerian-Lagrangian Transport Model
An Eulerian-Lagrangian algorithm, based on operator-splitting techniques has been formulated for the three-dimensional advection-diffusion equation. This combines the advantage of a fixed...

Methodology for Validation of a Tampa Bay Circulation Model
The National Ocean Service is presently conducting the Tampa Bay Oceanography Project, including development and application of a three-dimensional circulation model to the Bay, and collection...

Thirty Year Simulation of Chesapeake Bay Eutrophication
Eutrophication processes in Chesapeake Bay, 1959-1988, are simulated using a three-dimensional model package. Results link the volume of anoxic water to degree of stratification and to...

Nowcast Protocol for the Great Lakes Forecasting System
The Great Lakes Forecasting System is a cooperative federal-university undertaking designed to implement a predictive system for each of the Great Lakes. The desired forecasts concentrate...

A Coastal-Ocean Hindcast/Forecast Model
Flows in the coastal oceans are produced by interactions of different components: tides, winds, buoyancy discharge from estuaries, topography and remote forcing of deeper-ocean origin....

A Study of Salt Transport Processes in Delaware Bay
The study described here is a subset of a broader climate-related study, and is focused primarily on salinity intrusion into Delaware Bay and River. Given changes in freshwater discharge...
