Development of a Traffic Data Input System in Arizona for the MEPDG: Final Report 672

Description

This research study addresses the collection, preparation, and use of traffic data required for pavement design by the Arizona Department of Transportation, focusing on data required as inputs for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials "Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement

This research study addresses the collection, preparation, and use of traffic data required for pavement design by the Arizona Department of Transportation, focusing on data required as inputs for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials "Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide" design procedures. ADOT’s current traffic data collection and preparation processes are not adequate to meet the needs of the MEPDG procedure, and improvements are needed. These improvements include enhanced volume, classification, and weight data collection for vehicles, processing data and performing quality assurance checks, and the preparation/analysis of the data for use in the MEPDG. Use of the MEPDG in Arizona will require (1) an annual flow of updated key traffic data and (2) the ability to collect on-site (MEPDG Level 1) data in a timely manner for key projects.

Quantifying the Impact of New Freeway Segments

Description

Some freeway users complain that new freeway segments fill up with traffic during peak hours immediately after construction. Because of this concern, the debate about the costs and benefits of freeways often centers on relieving congestion. The literature states that

Some freeway users complain that new freeway segments fill up with traffic during peak hours immediately after construction. Because of this concern, the debate about the costs and benefits of freeways often centers on relieving congestion. The literature states that the long-term relief of congestion is an elusive goal. While congestion is a pervasive feature of freeways, it does not mean that constructing them is useless. This study helps to demonstrate that the great benefit of freeways is to facilitate travel rather than reduce peak-hour congestion. The study finds that the facilitated travel far outweighs the cost of freeway construction. Even if new freeway capacity becomes congested during peak travel hours, there is still great benefit in the increased travel mobility that can be accommodated.

The historical advantages of Grand Avenue and the railroad that led to the development of the West Valley cities have become a detriment to the further development or redevelopment in the past few decades. There is general agreement that significant improvements are needed for the Grand Avenue Corridor. Identified transportation funds provide an opportunity to develop a more modern transportation corridor along Grand Avenue. This study addresses these concerns by developing, evaluating, and recommending transportation investment options.
