Objectives
Objectives

  • Model vehicle operations on grades using the HCM 2000 two-lane highway directional analysis procedure

  • Evaluate need for climbing lanes

When to Use HCM 2000 Specific Grades Procedure: Upgrades

  • NO

    • Level Terrain:

    • Rolling Terrain:

  • MAYBE

  • MUST

How to use the hcm 2000 specific grades procedure upgrades
How to Use the HCM 2000 Specific Grades Procedure: Upgrades

  • Use the modified directional analysis procedure making the following replacements

  • Average Travel Speeds

    • fG:

    • ET and ER:

  • PTSF

    • fG:

    • ET and ER:

  • Everything else is the same

Michael Dixon


Criteria for evaluating the need for climbing lanes aashto
Criteria for Evaluating the Need for Climbing Lanes (AASHTO)

  • Upgrade traffic flow rate in excess of 200 vehicles per hour

  • Upgrade truck flow rate in excess of 20 vehicles per hour

  • One of the following conditions exists:

    • A 10 mph or greater reduction is expected for typical heavy truck

    • Level of service E or F exists on the grade

    • A reduction of two or more levels of service is experienced when moving from the approach segment to the grade

When to Use HCM 2000 Specific Grades Procedure: Downgrades

  • Opposing direction of any upgrade

How to Use the HCM 2000 Specific Grades Procedure: Downgrades

  • Use the modified directional analysis procedure making the following replacements

  • Average Travel Speeds (no trucks at crawl speeds)

    • fG:

    • ET and ER:
