Honors Thesis


Approximately 27 acres of undeveloped property located in McKinney, Texas is to be developed with two commercial pads along US 380 and the remaining land to be used for single-family homes. There are four steps to a Traffic Impact Analysis: trip generation, trip distribution, mode choice, and trip assignment. Trip generation is a function of household size, vehicles per home, employees, age, income, land use, and size of building. Trip distribution takes into account the information from trip generation and the travel time from the new development to other zones. Mode choice analyzes different alternatives of transportation based on travel time and cost. Finally, trip assignment predicts the route a vehicle will take based on road capacity and travel time.
