Spreadsheet Model for Induced Travel Estimation - Managed Lanes (SMITE-ML)

This Excel spreadsheet model applies the principles of pivot point mode choice analysis and economic analysis to evaluate highway capacity expansion with managed lanes in an urban setting, taking into account new travel that may be induced by highway expansion over and above that which is simply diverted from other regional highways. This model is useful for quick-response sketch planning analysis. The SMITE-ML 2.2 spreadsheet can be used to provide useful information to assist policy makers in evaluating proposals for specific additions to highway capacity involving either general purpose or managed lanes. The accompanying papers discuss the concepts underlying SMITE-ML, and describe applications of SMITE-ML to the evaluation of typical freeway capacity expansion projects involving different types of managed lanes.
