|TT4||The New Highway Capacity Manual 6th Edition: It’s Not Your Father’s HCM||Tom Creasey, Stantec; Janice Daniel, New Jersey Institute of Technology; and Bastian Schroeder, Kittelson & Associates||In late 2016, the Transportation Research Board published the Highway Capacity Manual, Sixth Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analysis. The Sixth Edition incorporates the latest research on highway capacity, quality of service, Active Traffic and Demand Management, and travel time reliability and improves the HCM’s chapter outlines. The workshop will focus on: 1) why practitioners and educators should use the HCM; 2) what can be done with methods in the HCM that can’t be done (or done as well) with other tools; and 3) what’s new in this version of the Manual.||1/2 day afternoon|
