RESEARCH IN URBAN TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT (ABRIDGMENT)

Project 2K is a program of applied research initiated in 1974 within the Office of Research of the Federal Highway Administration. The project's scope is designed to produce a set of methods and guidelines that will enable the local transportation planner and traffic engineer to systematically plan and implement traffic engineering and traffic control improvements. The project will also provide local officials with the methodology for performing a systematic analysis of the total metropolitan area and controlling and operating the system in that area in a manner that will ensure that it is used to its fullest potential. Because of the emphasis on field evaluation of control strategies, there is ample opportunity for active state and local participation in the research program. The FHWA is actively seeking comments and suggestions from the traffic engineering and transportation planning communities in relation to the objectives, scope, and substance of the proposed research. This type of input is considered to be a valuable ingredient in achieving a truly coordinated and productive research product.
