REGIONAL FREIGHT OF THE CORPUS CHRISTI & YOAKUM DISTRICTS: PHASE I & PHASE II

Published May 2010

The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive traffic simulation model using the microscopic computer simulation software, VISSIM, for the PR 22 Corridor. The models were developed to evaluate 2010 existing conditions along the corridor and analyze alternatives including the implementation of innovative signal timing and intersection designs at the intersections. The results of this study will be used as a results-oriented planning tool for the CCMPO and the City of Corpus Christi to make planning decisions regarding this corridor.

The Addendum - Alternative Analysis is a follow-up to the PR 22 Corridor Study prepared by HDR Engineering, Inc. and submitted to the Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in April, 2011.

REGIONAL FREIGHT: PHASE I REGIONAL FREIGHT: PHASE II

MAJOR FREIGHT FACILITIES IMPACT STUDY

Published February 2010

Strategically located as a gateway to interstate and international trade, Texas finds itself facing an unprecedented growth in trade. The ever increasing quantity of goods which move within Texas borders continues to strain the state’s transportation infrastructure, already taxed by rapid population growth.

In an effort to understand the present and future impacts that increased trade flowing through Texas will have on the transportation infrastructure, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Transportation Planning & Programming Division is conducting a series of studies providing multimodal freight movement analyses. These studies focus on geographic regions containing major trade corridors where such analyses can assist local leadership in identifying opportunities to improve efficiency in goods movement.
