Design/Build vs. Traditional Construction User Delay Modeling: An Evaluation of the Cost Effectiveness of Innovative Construction Methods for New Construction: Part 1. VISUM-Online for Salt Lake, Davis, and Utah Counties

VISUM Online is a traffic management system for processing online traffic data. The system implements both a road network model and a traffic demand model. VISUM Online uses all available real-time and historic data to calculate current and forecasted traffic conditions, not only for detectorized links, but also for all the links on the network. VISUM Online has been installed in a few places around the world. This report describes the first VISUM Online installation in North America and presents the structure and components of the VISUM Online system. This report presents preliminary results of the VISUM Online validation. It compares traffic conditions estimated by VISUM Online to measured data. The results show that VISUM Online produces comparable traffic measures.
