The objective of this project is to develop tools
and procedures to assist Iowa transportation planners and traffic
engineers in conducting various impact studies. The Iowa DOT
Transportation Planning and Modeling Research Needs Focus Group
has identified three types of studies, in particular, that are
likely to benefit from improved modeling techniques. These are:
site impact analysis, interchange and other major infrastructure
justification and bypass analysis.
The goal of this informational tool is to help guide and answer
questions related to the three types of studies. This tool can
either be used by following the provided links or by using the
site map feature which allows the user to jump to any location
they desire. To begin, please select the appropriate type of
analysis or the map button to view all the pages.
