Data & Modeling

Transportation Modeling

Point State Park
East Busway, Allegheny County
 

Each day, more than 7.5 million trips are taken on our transportation network throughout the region. SPC’s travel models provide data and analysis to help the region prepare effective transportation plans, manage congestion and meet air quality standards.  SPC routinely provides technical assistance to its members and partner agencies to develop traffic forecasts for key transportation improvements throughout the region. Several components of SPC’s travel demand model were reviewed and upgraded in 2015 to improve performance and streamline the modeling process. 

SPC received and responded to over 140 requests from planning partners and their consultant teams for travel projections and traffic growth factors for ongoing projects in 2016.  Key 2016 travel demand forecasting project locations included:

  • Travel demand analysis for East Busway Extension feasibility study — Allegheny County
  • Assessment of detour routes for temporary closures of PA Turnpike for bridge replacement in Cranberry Township — Butler County
  • Assessment of changes in travel patterns resulting from proposed conversion of Allegheny Circle to two-way operation — City of Pittsburgh
  • Assessment of changes in travel patterns resulting from proposed conversion of Penn Circle to two-way operation — City of Pittsburgh
  • Mon Fayette Expressway — Allegheny County
  • Parkway East Improvements Study — City of Pittsburgh/Allegheny County
  • Laurel Valley Improvement Project — Westmoreland County
  • Banksville Interchange (I-376) Improvements — City of Pittsburgh
  • Assessment of current and future trips patterns at the Waterfront in Homestead — Allegheny County
  • Assessment of existing travel patterns at the site of proposed development projects in Oakland — City of Pittsburgh
  • Assessment of existing travel patterns at the site of proposed development projects in Pittsburgh’s Chateau neighborhood — City of Pittsburgh

Modeling support was also provided to several in-house planning studies in 2016 including SPC’s Regional Freight Plan, the Regional Cashless Tolling Study, and the Butler Transit Development Plan.
