- Are you & your colleagues interested in a user-friendly forecasting TOOLKIT to examine the BENEFITS AND COSTS of new congestion-abating transportation projects and policies?
- Are you ready for a methodologically sound process to evaluate TRAVEL TIME, RELIABILITY, SAFETY, and EMISSIONS impacts of CAPACITY expansion and OPERATIONAL improvement projects?
Please have your top planning staff join TxDOT’s Project 0-6487 USER WORKSHOP/WEBINAR: “A Toolkit to Evaluate (and Compare) the Benefits of Operational Improvements and Capacity Additions”
Time: Monday, July 11th, 12 noon till 5 p.m., at TxDOT’s Riverside offices (Building 200’s Classroom B, at 200 E. Riverside Drive), in Austin, Texas.
The Toolkit and Guidebook will debut via demonstrations (from 12 noon till 3 pm) using Austin-area project case studies, so that audience members can appreciate the user-friendly Excel interface, the details behind the programs, opportunities for data inputs, and the variety of forecast outputs.
From 3 pm until 5 pm, those wishing to stay on and apply the toolkit to specific projects (e.g., analysis of I-30 tolling in DFW, I-35 expansion in SAN, and I-10 HOT lanes in HOU) will have access to on-site instructors, software and computers.
All participants will have access to digital copies of the toolkit and guidebook.
