KYTC Microsimulation Guidelines

The KYTC Microsimulation Guidelines provide a framework for conducting traffic microsimulation analysis in Kentucky. This guideline document outlines the entire microsimulation process and is intended to serve as a reference to assist modelers, project managers, reviewers, and other project team members throughout the process. The guidelines focus primarily on Vissim and TransModeler, providing modeling best practice and recommended KY default parameter values for each software (where applicable).
