I-394 Minneapolis, Minnesota ICM AMS Model Calibration and Validation Report

File NTL # PDF
Useful to Transportation modelers interested in learning more about ICM AMS methodology
Abstract This report documents the calibration and validation of the baseline (2008) mesoscopic model for the I-394 Minneapolis, Minnesota, Pioneer Site. DynusT was selected as the mesoscopic model for analyzing operating conditions in the I-394 corridor study area, and the report provides details on the network development, traffic flow model calibration, origin-destination (OD) demand calibration, and model validation. In addition, the report provides a modeling methodology for simulation of transit, as well as the results of a sensitivity analysis, utilizing information from a known incident, undertaken to verify the ability of the validated model to replicate operating conditions for incident scenarios.
