NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COUNTY ENGINEERS ACTION GUIDE SERIES, VOLUME XV: TRAVEL GENERATION

This manual provides trip generation data for various land use activities for different geographical areas of the U.S., and presents methods for conducting traffic studies that will produce trip generation data. The manual also outlines ways in which the trip generation data can be used in reviewing proposed development plans, developing an areawide transportation plan, and determining the need for county highway system upgrading or isolated safety improvements. Appendices are included which give details on trip generation rates, the determination of current and 20-year projected traffic volumes on a specific route, and the determination of current and 20-year PM peak hour volumes on a specific route. The information provided here supplements the NACE Action Guide, "Planning County Road Systems".
