MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRAFFIC FORECASTING MODEL. VOLUME I-F. AIR AND NOISE POLLUTION SYSTEM ANALYSIS MODEL

Federal legislation requires that the evaluation of each highway project include an estimate of the amount of noise and air pollution which will probably be generated with implementation. The traditional approach to an evaluation of this sort is to analyze the proposed road in isolation. The methodology described is superior in that it is able to account for system level impacts; that is, one is now able to monitor the environmental consequences of a single project on the pollution level of the entire system. The models modified for use within the Statewide System and described are those originally designed by the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). The actual programs, and the technical information relating to their use can be found in SRI's battery of computer programs known as SNAP - i.e., Standard Network Analysis Package. /Author/
