COMPARATIVE TRAFFIC USAGE OF OLENTANGY RIVER ROAD AND ALTERNATE CITY ARTERIALS IN COLUMBUS, OHIO

AN ORIGIN DESTINATION STUDY PREVIOUSLY CONDUCTED WAS USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH A FIELD STUDY OF ZONE-TO-ZONE TIME-DELAY STUDIES CONDUCTED DURING PEAK AND OFF-PEAK HOURS ON THE OLENTANGY ROAD TO COMPUTE THE PERCENTAGES OF TRAFFIC MAKING ZONE-TO-ZONE MOVEMENTS VIA THE RIVER ROAD, THE RELATIVE TIME CONSUMED IN MAKING THE TRIPS VIA THE RIVER ROAD VERSUS THE BEST COMPETING FACILITY AND THE RELATIVE DISTANCES. MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSIONS WERE DERIVED TO ANALYZE THE DATA COLLECTED IN THE STUDIES. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT IF A SUFFICIENT NUMBER AND VARIETY OF EXISTING FACILITIES WERE THUS STUDIED, MATHEMATICAL EQUATIONS COULD BE DEVELOPED TO AID IN PREDICTING TRAFFIC USAGE.
