SPEED/VOLUME RELATIONSHIPS ON TEXAS HIGHWAYS

The data collected statewide indicates a linear relationship between speed and volume over a wide range of volumes for freeways, and multilane rural highways. The slope of the speed/volume curve is nearly horizontal. For 2-lane rural and all urban highways, the slope of the speed/volume curve is a function of a number of factors which in many cases also results in a linear speed/volume curve.
