Use of MicroSimulation to Convey Access Management Techniques

  • Authored by:  Mike Curtit , Jason Sommerer

The Missouri Department of Transportation has utilized several microsimulation software packages to analyze the impacts of proposed designs, such as interchange footprint and outer road spacing. Traditionally, one of the most difficult aspects of a project has been providing a clear understanding of the final product to the public. This paper discusses the use of visual simulation models to convey access management techniques to the general public.
