Development and sensitivity testing of alternative mobility metrics

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) manages the state highway system under the guidance of the 1999 Oregon Highway Plan (OHP) (ODOT 1999). Among other things, OHP policies and actions emphasize efficient use of limited resources. This emphasis, in turn, underlies ODOT's general commitment to sound maintenance of the existing highway system and preservation of its function and safety. OHP Policy 1F establishes mobility standards for state highway facilities to further orient ODOT's planning and programming activities. The mobility standards are expressed as the ratio of the 30th highest hour traffic volume to the facility design hourly capacity (i.e., V/C), and are presented in OHP Tables 6 and 7 (ODOT 1999: 83-84)., This archived document is maintained by the Oregon State Library as part of the Oregon Documents Depository Program.

Abstract/Description: The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) manages the state highway system under the guidance of the 1999 Oregon Highway Plan (OHP) (ODOT 1999). Among other things, OHP policies and actions emphasize efficient use of limited resources. This emphasis, in turn, underlies ODOT's general commitment to sound maintenance of the existing highway system and preservation of its function and safety. OHP Policy 1F establishes mobility standards for state highway facilities to further orient ODOT's planning and programming activities. The mobility standards are expressed as the ratio of the 30th highest hour traffic volume to the facility design hourly capacity (i.e., V/C), and are presented in OHP Tables 6 and 7 (ODOT 1999: 83-84).
