The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) contacted the University of Texas Center for Transportation Research (CTR) to provide data that would help them understand how the addition of Express Lanes on MoPac, in several of the six configurations currently being considered, could impact travel times on the street network within downtown Austin. CTR conducted an independent analysis of these impacts through a local dynamic traffic assignment, or DTA, study. Learn more about the results of this study through this video interview with Jennifer Duthie, Ph.D., Director of the Network Modeling Center at CTR.
