Bicycle Level of Traffic Stress and Connectivity Analysis

Product No.: WEB20030
Date Published: 2/2021

Geographic Area Covered: All 9 counties in the DVRPC Region

Abstract: Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) is a road classification scheme based on the comfort of bicyclists using that road. DVRPC’s LTS assignment is based on the number of lanes, effective vehicle speed, and presence/type of bicycle facility. The Connectivity Analysis was conducted to determine which segments provide the greatest number of connections throughout the region, from every census block to every other census block. Results highlight road segments which are high priority candidates for bicycle facility improvements.

Key Words: Bicycle, LTS, connectivity, island, low-stress, level of traffic stress,
