Develop, calibrate and validate the Garden State Parkway (GSP) network and integrate it with the fully calibrated NJ Turnpike (NJTPK) simulation model. Build this portion of the network in a phased approach, coordinating with NJ TPK staff to identify priority segments, starting with GSP Interchange 135, Clarke Traffic Circle and connecting local network. Closely collaborate with Vollmer Assoc. Inc. to support the in-depth analysis of the alternative proposed for the Interchange 135, Clarke traffic circle. (A small portion of the local network and traffic circle will be modeled to capture the interaction between the circle and the traffic signals and other local traffic.)
