Frontage Road Yield Treatment Analysis Tool (FRYTAT) Database: User Guide

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) sponsored Project 0-4986, “An Assessment of Frontage Road Yield Treatments,” to assess the effectiveness of a wide variety of frontage road–exit ramp and frontage road–U-turn yield treatments that exist in Texas. Toward this goal, simulation modeling procedures compensated for the impracticability of the data collection effort that would be required to compile every possible combination of volume, geometry and yield treatment types. Researchers ran several simulations and generated significant numbers of measures of performance and comparative analysis. To better present the data in a more coherent manner, they developed a database tool to incorporate the results of the research and present these results in a format that would be useful to TxDOT staff. This report is the user guide for that database tool, the Frontage Road Yield Treatment Analysis Tool (FRYTAT).
