Unformatted text preview: Transportation Engineering 4 Q Exam 2 Fa112007 Name PROBLEM 1. Observe the simple network below showing free travel times in minutes on five links. Origin to destination vehicle flows for a single hour are given in the table. Based on the ' free travel times shown for each link on the network. assign the vehicle trips to the network using all-or-nothing traffic assignment and show the volumes On each direction of Peach and Elm Streets. The “practical” capacity of each link is 1800 vehicles per hour. What should be the recalculated travel time on eastbound Elm St. (toward A) given the traditional (1964) BPR travel time formula? (10 points) IIII Ila-II! III PROBLEM 2. The Foxville Apartment Complex is just 1.5 miles from downtown. Each day 200 people make this trip. There is direct bus service between these two locations. Time by bus for a single trip consists of 10 minutes of riding, 6 minutes of waiting and 8 minutes of walking. Bicycle time is 15 minutes'foWDriving time for a single trip is 9 minutes (including walking to and from parking). Drivers travel alone. It costs $6.00_to park for a day, and the bus fare is $1.00 for each ride. How many people will take the bus? Use the coefficients presented in problem 4-18 in the textbook and am = 0 for automobile and am = -2.0 for bicycle and am = -0.40 for bus. Assume walking and biking time are “line—haul” times.

A fieeway between Foxville and Dovefield consists of three lanes. Heavy trucks, being 20% of all vehicles, must use the right-hand lane.
