Driving risk could increase as roadway conditions become more hazardous because of adverse weather conditions. This could lead to an increase in crash frequencies. About 24 percent of all reported motor vehicle crashes in the United States are related to weather conditions. Adverse winter weather may...

 
400 South Corridor Assessment (Mar 2017, MPC-17-318)

Local transportation agencies in the Salt Lake City (SLC) Metropolitan Area spent more than a decade working toward building a sustainable regional transportation system. Light Rail Transit (LRT) is an integral part of that system. Currently, three LRT lines operate along the Wasatch Front area. A new...

 

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is becoming one of the most popular transit services in the United States. BRT is a viable option for many cities and can offer commuters travel times comparable to those experienced in private cars. With about 100 miles of BRT service scheduled for deployment in future years...

 

This report describes the University of Utah Traffic Lab (UTL) driving simulator, and a scenario development for Flex Lanes driving simulation. The first part describes the driving simulator in details. At the time of installation, the UTL driving simulator was unique and the first to join microsimulation...

 

This report presents an analysis of freeway incidents on the Salt Lake Valley freeway network. Different types of incidents at the most common/difficult locations are analyzed through traffic microsimulation using VISSIM simulation software. The analysis focuses on incident induced freeway delays, but...

 

The goal of this study is to evaluate light rail priority strategies along the 400 S / 500 S corridor in Salt Lake County through analyzing benefits and impacts of the priority on transit and vehicular traffic through microsimulation. The results show that the existing priority strategies have no impacts...

 

This study evaluates the impact of proposed replacement on the travelers in Summit County. The purpose of this research is to provide UDOT an estimation of possible delay costs due to congested traffic resulting from the proposed work zone scenarios. The VISSIM micro-simulation tool is used to build...

 

Innovative lane management offers the opportunity to levy fees for the premium road space. Express Lanes in Utah offer road users reduced journey times for a fee. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has converted the High Occupancy-Vehicle (HOV) lanes on Interstate 15 (I-15) from 600 North Street...
