A QUICK RESPONSE SCREENING MODEL FOR PLANNING STATEWIDE ORIGIN/DESTINATION SURVEYS

Highway intercept surveys are widely used to collect information about the origins, destinations, and other characteristics of trips made in and through a region. This paper describes a formal intercept survey site selection process that was developed for application in a statewide travel data collection project. The objectives of the process were to select cost-effective site locations, to provide information on the marginal productivity of different numbers of sites, and to provide continuing guidance for contingency planning as the actual survey work proceeded. The quantitative tools developed to guide site selection include a traditional network-based highway model and a mixed integer optimization model. In addition, the particular application of this work, the general role of highway intercept surveys, and some issues that arise in their use are described. The general approach used for the project and the formal computer models that were developed are detailed. Results of the Georgia application are described.
