FDOT Rebuilds Florida Statewide Model

The Forecasting and Trends Office announces a major update to the Florida Statewide Model. This new base-year 2015 model, with a horizon year of 2045, replaces the 2010/2040 model last updated in 2016. Version 7.0 contains significant improvements including a destination choice model, long-distance mode choice/short-distance mode factoring, a firm-evolution component in FreightSIM, and a feedback loop in the model flow. In addition, we updated trip production rates, improved the tolling methodology, and streamlined trip assignment reporting.

The new Florida Statewide Model is available for download at the Florida transportation modeling website: https://www.fsutmsonline.net/index.php?/model_pages/modDS1/index/

FDOT Forecasting and Trends Office Completes Study of UROAD Factors

The Florida Standard Urban Transportation Model Structure (FSUTMS) specifies that models use an attribute referred to as UROAD, which is the ratio of the practical to absolute capacity of a model link. This memo demonstrates the role that UROAD plays in the Florida modeling context by examining the impact of different UROAD parameters on total assigned trips, congested trip times, and congested speeds. The UROAD factors currently used in Florida models are listed, along with other associated variable factors, like the alpha and beta parameters and the peak-to-daily capacity ratio attribute.
