APPI and ITE Edmonton Event "Social and Economic Impacts of Investment in the Transportation Network in Alberta"

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Registration: 11:30am Lunch, Presentation: 12:00 - 1:00pm
Location: Main Dining Room, Upper level, Faculty Club at the University of Alberta, 11435 Saskatchewan Drive, Edmonton

Alberta Transportation has operated several cost benefit analysis tools and regional travel models over the last few years. These models have allowed AT to test the impact of changes to the existing transportation network from a user perspective. In order to capture the broader impacts of network changes on economic performance and land use or vice versa, Alberta has developed the Alberta Spatial Economic and Travel (ASET) Demand Model. Although still in the first year of development, ASET has been used to demonstrate how various provincial/regional policy and capacity scenarios could impact household migration and labour reallocation, and how households, businesses, industries and government may be benefitted or disbenefitted by each of these scenarios. The ASET model was a recent winner of the Minister’s Award of Excellence for Operational Innovation. Presenter is Ann Coffin with Alberta Transportation.
