  • Traffic forecasting for small- to medium-sized urban areas
  • Published at:Not Found
  • In recent years there has been a noticeable shift away from the application of computer-based transportation modeling methods in small- to medium-sized urban areas.^In many cases, this shift has resulted from a disenchantment with the complex modeling methodologies used in the late 1960s and early 1970s.^The expense of such methods, in terms of data collection and computational costs, was simply not worth the marginal improvement in forecasting accuracy over ``quick-response`` methods.^This article describes a recently developed methodological package that can be readily applied to forecast the traffic-related impacts of a wide range of transportation-facility-related improvements.^The package uses some of the most advanced transportation analysis techniques to predict traffic flows and measure the performance of specific highway links and the network as a whole.^In addition, an attempt is made to keep data requirements to a minimum.
