USING A REGIONAL TRAFFIC MODEL TO PROGRAM PHASE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW HIGHWAY. IN: TRANSPORTATION PLANNING METHODS APPLICATIONS. PROCEEDINGS, THIRD NATIONAL CONFERENCE, DALLAS, TEXAS, APRIL 22-26, 1991
As part of the transportation planning activities in the region, travel characteristics on the highway and street network have been formulated in TModel 2 by the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. The economic base of the county consists of manufacturing activities, regional medical facilities, and institutions of higher learning within a surrounding agricultural community. The county has a population of approximately 132,000 persons. Over time, traffic congestion has developed on major arterial routes that serve and shape the growth in the county. To provide some relief along critical road sections and at oversaturated intersections, a bypass around the developed area has been located in the western portion of the coounty. Because funding is not adequate to complete the entire bypass, a program of phase construction is contemplated within the limitations of the available monies. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to use the regional network model as a tool for programming the phase construction of the new facility.
