Traffic Forecast Model Development Progresses for Road Study

Posted: Sep 16, 2019

Alan Dybing, Tim Horner, and Denver Tolliver of UGPTI met with staff of the Oil and Gas Division of the North Dakota Industrial Division in late August to obtain the latest estimates of energy development in the state. Oil well drilling estimates, along with updated data on inbound and outbound truck, rail and pipeline shipments for each well, will be used to develop comprehensive traffic models for predicting traffic across the state for the next 20 years. Those predictions will be used to estimate road and bridge investment needs for the county and township roads.
