ABSTRACT

Southeast United States Hurricane Evacuation Traffic Study   [open pdf - 8MB]

"At the federal level, under the directives of Vice President Gore, FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency], USDOT [U.S. Department of Transportation], and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers joined together to address problems that surfaced during the Floyd evacuation. Specifically, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina were promised that an initial effort would be accomplished by February 2000 to find out what the public did in response to Floyd, to develop a web based travel demand forecast system that would anticipate evacuation traffic congestion and cross state travel flows, and to coordinate with state DOTs [Department of Transportation] on one way strategies and ITS [information technology service] technologies. To assist with this effort, PBS&J [now Atkins Global] was hired as a consultant to produce the necessary products and facilitate the important coordination effort associated with the process."
