Title

University of Central Florida, Quadrangle and Central Florida Research Park Traffic Analysis

Abstract

This research evaluated the existing and future problems of the transportation facilities leading to the University of Central Florida (UCF). During the past few years, all roadways around the university have become traffic congested. Most of the intersections are operating at a low level of service (LOS). Varied road improvements are projected in the area to accommodate the traffic growth and improve the level of service. Three major sources are partially responsible for these traffic problems: the Central Florida Research Park, the Quadrangle and the University of Central Florida. This report evaluates the present and future level of service of the roadways leading to the university, taking into account the projected improvements and t he future developments of the three traffic attractions listed above. The methodology included in this study was based on the Urban Transportation Planning Proces (UTPP), which consists of four sub-models as follows: (1) trip generation, (2) trip distribution, (3) modal split and (4) traffic assignment. The study was divided into time periods according to the projected developments in the area and the problems were analyzed through the year 2005.
