- 41 - Figure 35 â Field data and predicted speed-flow curve for (a) lane 1 and (b) lane 2 (CA-1 NB â Santa Cruz, CA) 8. System Analysis This section describes briefly the methodology developed for estimating travel time performance measures for specific O-D trips considering both urban streets and freeways. The details of the methodology are provided in Appendix A: Chapter 38 â Systems Analysis. The methodology provides the detailed steps to evaluate networks with freeway and urban street movements, as illustrated in the example of Figure 36.
- 42 - Figure 36 â Origins and destinations for a sample network (Gainesville, FL) The methodology in Chapter 38 generates the following performance measures: Freeway Facilities: â¢ Flow, free-flow speed, operating speed, and capacity for individual lanes â¢ Expected travel speed along each segment and each lane Urban Streets Facilities: â¢ Travel time along each segment â¢ Expected travel speed along each segment System Analysis: â¢ Total and free-flow travel times â¢ Travel Time Index â¢ Average travel speed
