MAKING THE LAND USE/TRANSPORTATION/AIR QUALITY CONNECTION: VOLUME 4 - MODEL MODIFICATIONS

"Making the Land Use, Transportation, Air Quality Connection" (LUTRAQ) is a national demonstration project to develop methodologies for creating alternative suburban land use patterns and design standards and evaluating their impacts on: automobile dependency; mobility; air quality; energy consumption; and sense of community. Using the proposed Western Bypass freeway around the Portland, Oregon metropolitan region as a case study, LUTRAQ has (1) identified alternative land use development patterns that reduce travel demand and increase the use of alternative travel modes, and (2) developed reliable transportation modeling procedures that forecast the travel behavior associated with these alternative land use patterns. The LUTRAQ project contains six primary tasks, of which this report addresses the fourth, Task D - Modify the Models. The report summarizes the work undertaken by the LUTRAQ project team and the Metropolitan Service District (Metro) to enhance the Portland area land use and transportation forecasting and analysis procedures. Efforts included enhancement of the transportation models, and integration of the transportation models with land use models.
