US-75 NORTH CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY RECONSTRUCTION: OCTOBER 1991 TRAFFIC CONDITIONS. INTERIM REPORT

This report documents the results of the traffic data collection efforts during October 1991, sixteen months after reconstruction began on the US-75 North Central Expressway south of the I-635 LBJ Freeway. Traffic conditions and patterns were monitored during October 1989 and May 1990 (before construction) and during October 1990, May 1991, and October 1991 (during the first sixteen months of the project). The traffic monitoring efforts included traffic data collection and automobile and transit user surveys. The traffic data collection efforts included screen line traffic volume counts, vehicle occupancy and classification counts, and travel time runs. The automobile and transit users surveys are documented elsewhere. The results indicate that the reconstruction activities underway during the October 1991 data collection efforts had little impact on peak period, peak direction traffic conditions and patterns in the corridor. The October 1991 volume and travel time data suggests that the construction project may be having an impact on off-peak period traffic conditions and patterns.
