TRUCK VOLUME ANALYSIS PROCEDURES. VOLUME 2 - TRUCK VOLUME FORECASTING. FINAL REPORT
The study develops a methodology for forecasting future truck volumes. The proposed methodology projects truck traffic on a link-by-link basis and does not account for the interrelation among links. The study determines the relations between truck volumes and selected explanatory variables observed at certain locations and then develops a forecasting process which applies the estimated relationship between truck traffic and selected explanatory variables to forecast future truck traffic. Recommendations are also provided for improving and updating the proposed forecasting methodology.
