Broward County Year 2010 Plan Update Model Validation
Transportation Planning studies have been conducted in a large number of urban areas throughout the world during the past 25 years. A process for conducting these studies has developed, and is still evolving, which attempts to provide a systematic method for solving urban transportation problems. The Federal Aid Highway Act of 1962 requires any metropolitan areas of 50,000 or more population to have a long-range transportation plan to meet future travel demand. The Broward County Year 2010 Plan Update is designed to upgrade the existing transportation network in Broward County to meet travel demand in the area by the year 2010. The Florida Standard Urban Transportation Model Structure (FSUTMS) was used in the Plan Update. This technical report documents the model validation effort performed during that process. In this effort, the FSUTMS model was validated against a set of data derived from local travel studies, model documentation, research reports, field data and available information. The original purpose of model validation is to demonstrate the effective use of the model in developing potential long-range transportation improvement strategies in the Broward County area.
