MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRAFFIC FORECASTING MODEL. VOLUME VII-A. CAPACITY ADEQUACY FORECASTING MODEL. STATEWIDE STUDIES UNIT

The capacity adequacy Forecasting Model is a computerized technique used in determining the number of days in a year a highway link will probably be congested beyond its practical capacity. The adequacy of a link in terms of capacity can be predicted as a function of two link-specific independent variables -- v/c ratio and Design Hour Volume (DHV). This report discusses the model's development through the use of contingency tables and correlation analysis. The forecasts from the model may serve as a complementary criteria in evaluating future trunkline deficiencies. /Author/
