FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE TRAFFIC MODEL: FORECASTING TRAVEL DEMAND FOR A 300 MILE CORRIDOR. IN: TRANSPORTATION PLANNING METHODS APPLICATIONS. PROCEEDINGS, THIRD NATIONAL CONFERENCE, DALLAS, TEXAS, APRIL 22-26, 1991

This paper describes a methodology for systems traffic forecasting along rural and urban, existing and proposed sections of Florida's turnpike. This methodology combines traffic count and population trends with turnpike usage data and existing urban area transportation planning models into a consistent set of systems traffic forecasts. The four major topics which describe the process in detail are: growth trend analysis; urbanized area models; design hour recommendations; and reevaluation and updating.
