Access to Destinations: Twin Cities Metro-wide Traffic Micro-simulation Feasibility Investigation

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  05/27/2008


This research investigates the feasibility of developing a metro-wide traffic simulation system. The researchers looked at the state of the practice in large urban simulation projects around the world, conducted interviews with local stakeholders, and examined the capabilities of currently available simulation packages. They conclude that while a micro-simulation approach would have been the best possible solution, lack of suitable data precludes such an approach. Thus, the research team considers the hybrid mesoscopic/microscopic approach optimal. The first four in the series are numbered 2006-16, 2007-24, 2007-35 and 2008-11.
