A GIS AND TRANSPORTATION OPTIMIZATION MODEL APPROACH TO DETERMINING HIGHWAY AND RURAL ROAD COMMODITY FLOWS

This synopsis, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, describes a substudy of the Eastern Washington Intermodal Transportation Study. The substudy addresses grain commodity flows from the farm to final market and the resulting impact on rural roads and state, national, and interstate highways in the region. Data acquisition procedures include the use of a geographic information system combined with a traditional cost minimization model.
