Computer Modelling of Traffic and Emission Impacts of a Large, Mixed Use Development: the Case of the Prospective Burlington Innovation District

Project Description

This research is being carried out in conjunction with Colliers International and the Franhoefer Institute to look at analytical approaches that will assist in the optimization of a transportation plan of the yet to be developed Burlington Innovation District (BID) in Burlington, ON. The objectives of the research include: identifying the firms that are suitable for the BID and design and develop a traffic computer simulation model to examine the traffic and environmental impacts of the BID under different scenarios.
