FREEWAY OPERATIONS STUDY. PHASE IV. EVALUATION OF SELECTED SURFACE STREET NETWORK MODELS
The objective of this study is to select a surface street model best suited for integration with the FREQ3 freeway model and for ultimate incorporation into an urban freeway corridor model. The report begins with a general description of the evaluative procedure and of the selected evaluation criteria. A brief introduction to the SIGOP and TRANSYT models follows. Then the results of the application of these two models to an actual network are described. Finally, the evaluation of the SIGOP and TRANSYT models is described, and TRANSYT is selected as the model best suited for project needs. The report ends with a summary and a list of recommendations.
