Local agencies needed for traffic study
Local traffic planning agencies are being asked to contribute to the nationwide Traffic Analysis and Simulation Pooled Fund Study (PFS). Administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration, the PFS allows participating agencies to tap each other’s experience in planning transportation projects and to build partnerships on those projects.
The PFS will develop methods for addressing several issues, including modeling for unique projects such as multimodal corridors and for non-recurring congestion caused by accidents, weather and work zones. Any public agency responsible for conducting, managing or approving traffic analysis studies may participate. Information on the program is available at www.tfhrc.gov/its/traffic analysis.htm.
