US-75 NORTH CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY RECONSTRUCTION: OCTOBER 1994 AND MAY 1995 TRAFFIC CONDITIONS AND SURVEY RESULTS. INTERIM REPORT

This report documents the results of the October 1994 and May 1995 traffic data collection and automobile user panel survey efforts during the fifth year of the US-75 North Central Expressway reconstruction project south of the I-635 LBJ Freeway in Dallas, Texas. Traffic conditions and patterns have been monitored each October and May since 1990. The traffic monitoring efforts involved traffic data collection and an automobile users' survey. The traffic data collection included screen line traffic volume counts, vehicle occupancy and classification counts, and travel time runs. Overall, the October 1994 and May 1995 results indicate that the US-75 North Central Expressway reconstruction project may have had a small impact on peak period and daily travel in the corridor. The increased construction activity in the middle sections of the project where lane closures and/or detours were required resulted in diversion from US-75 to alternative routes in the corridor. The Ross and Live Oak reversible lane systems appear to provide some relief to congestion in the corridor.
