Traffic Operations Analysis Tool Guidebook Version 1.1

There are several types of traffic analysis tools designed to fit projects of different sizes, scopes, and objectives. Depending on the project type, there may be more than one suitable traffic analysis tool, or the project may require more than one traffic analysis tool to be used simultaneously. Based on these reasons, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) identified the need to develop this guidance document to help project managers select the most appropriate traffic analysis tool(s) during the project scoping phase, understand the standard assumptions related to each traffic analysis tool, and produce consistent output from these traffic analysis tools for transportation analyses. The need for this guidebook was based on the premise that project managers will benefit from consistent guidance for scoping projects and reviewing results. This document is intended to supplement more general information provided at the federal level regarding the selection of traffic analysis tools.
