Abstract

This paper addresses an analytical model for estimating traffic parameters on a grid networkof urban streets. By proposing 2 route choice models, we try to provide a simple expression ofdirectional traffic flows on different kinds of intersections within a grid network, following itsfundamental hierarchical structure. Our main purpose is to simplify macroscopic trafficsimulation. The proposed analytical model can be used to estimate traffic parameters on roadswith relatively less interest in a simulation study. A comparison study with macroscopictraffic simulation results is also carried on, which is utilized as the validation of the analyticalmodel finally.
