About the research

Abstract: The objectives of this project are to evaluate the use of traffic simulation models for future use by the Iowa Department of Transportation and to develop procedures for employing simulation modeling to conduct the analysis of alternative designs. This report presents both the findings of the US 61 evaluation and an overview of model development procedures.
