Emerging Tools for Modeling our Transportation System

Join Tyler Deke and Shaun Quayle as they discuss travel demand modeling within Oregon. Tyler will present an overview of modeling in Central Oregon including an overview of existing models in use throughout the region, the development of the Bend-Redmond model (on-going project), and possible next steps for Central Oregon. Shaun will present on the application of mesoscopic Dynamic Traffic Assignment for the Sunnybrook extension alternatives analysis in Clackamas County, Oregon. He’ll summarize the steps involved in the analysis, the advantages of DTA, and the real challenges to its use.

Sign-in & networking begins at 11:45 am, and the workshop will start at noon. Drinks and cookies will be provided. Please bring your own bag lunch.
