Abstract
Traffic assignment models based on the user-equilibrium approach are one of the most widely used tools in transportation planning analysis. Resulting offer a static average view of the expected use of the road infrastructure under the modeling hypothesis. This information has usually been enough for the planning decisions. The planned infrastructure is probably sufficient for average demand, but time-varying traffic, i.e., at peak periods, combined with the in¯uence of road geometry, can produc...
