Stochastic Models for Incorporating Traffic Reliability Goals in Roadway Improvement Scheduling


Project Abstract

This project will develop mathematical modeling concepts for incorporating traffic reliability into optimal prioritization and scheduling decisions for the implementation of improvement actions on roadways using concepts of stochastic modeling. To tackle the large-scale nature of roadway problems, an Optimization via Simulation (OvS) solution methodology will be employed. The models and solution methods will be illustrated on a case study replicating the Hampton Roads area in Virginia. Implications for the development of deployable decision support tools or policies will also be established.
