PROJECTION OF POTENTIAL NATIONAL AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS (NAAQS). VIOLATIONS ON THE SEMCOG 1974 HIGHWAY NETWORK

The paper is intended to present the results of the 'manual model' presented in TRAN-WP-15-5/75 when run on SEMCOG's 1970 Highway Network File updated for 1974 traffic. The paper includes the variables used as input for the operation of the model. By their use a map of the highway sections and intersection in the region which, in 1974, under the limited assumptions of the model, exhibit the potential for violation of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards was constructed (map not included). The application of this model as a 'sketch-type' planning tool is being advanced for review by local, state and federal agencies. If this application is favorably received, further model runs will be made to indicate concentration changes up to and, if necessary, beyond the target year for attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.
