  • The objectives of this project are:
  1. Conduct literature search.
  2. Interview ITD representatives and staff from neighboring state DOTs.
  3. Define and quantify congestion on rural roads, including subcategories related to terrain, locality, roadway standards, and the percentage of heavy vehicles.
