MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRAFFIC FORECASTING MODEL. VOLUME I-H. LEVEL OF SERVICE SYSTEMS ANALYSIS MODEL--A PUBLIC INTERACTION APPLICATION. STATEWIDE STUDIES UNIT

Recent legislation has made it the responsibility of each highway department to effectively communicate with the public in matters concerning future highway projects. The public must now be made aware of the total picture and what effects each project might have on them. Since the general public finds it difficult to understand the "jargon" of the highway engineers, techniques must be devised to communicate suspected impacts of alternate proposals to them in a meaningful, logical, and comprehensive manner. The level of service concept is one with which many are able to readily identify. This report is meant to illustrate how this concept may be employed as an effective device for public communication. The emphasis throughout is placed on its graphic use for public involvement rather than the actual principles of the concept itself. /Author/
