RECREATIONAL TRAVEL

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES AN ANALYSIS OF RECREATIONAL TRAVEL, WHICH WAS DESIGNED TO TEST THE CAPACITY OF FREEWAYS PLANNED FOR 1985 TO SUPPORT WEEKEND OR RECREATIONAL TRAFFIC. THE RESULTS SHOWN WERE ACHIEVED BY DEVELOPING AN ESTIMATING EQUATION USING KNOWN 1964 DATA CONSISTING OF TRIP, POPULATION, AND LAND USE INFORMATION. PROJECTED 1985 LAND USE DATA WERE THEN SUBSTITUTED IN THE EQUATION TO PRODUCE EXPECTED 1985 RECREATIONAL TRIPS WHICH WERE DISTRIBUTED AMONG THE 1985 PLANNED ROADS, IN THE SAME PROPORTION AS THE 1964 DISTRIBUTION. SUNDAY, RATHER THAN SATURDAY TRAFFIC HAS BEEN USED THROUGHOUT THE REPORT. /TRRL/
