Downtown Kelowna Traffic Model

This paper describes a detailed traffic model for the downtown Kelowna area recently developed by EBA. The model integrates a travel demand model, micro-simulation and capacity analysis models. The objective of the project is to evaluate the impacts of alternate transportation strategies and land use scenarios on traffic operations in the downtown area, particularly along Highway 97. EBA previously developed a regional transport model for the Regional District of Central Okanagan. The Sub-Area Demand Model applies the standard 'four-step' modeling process and uses the regional model as a base. The model contains a more detailed road network and zone structure within the downtown area. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD record number 201309RT334E.
