The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive traffic simulation model using the microscopic computer simulation software, VISSIM, for the PR 22 Corridor. The models were developed to evaluate 2010 existing conditions along the corridor and analyze alternatives including the implementation of innovative signal timing and intersection designs at the intersections. The results of this study will be used as a results-oriented planning tool for the CCMPO and the City of Corpus Christi to make planning decisions regarding this corridor.
The Addendum - Alternative Analysis is a follow-up to the PR 22 Corridor Study prepared by HDR Engineering, Inc. and submitted to the Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in April, 2011 . The purpose of this letter is to provide a qualitative analysis of potential innovative solutions for the intersection of PR 22 and SH 361 in Corpus Christi, Texas. While the previous study recommended the implementation of a superstreet concept for this intersection, other options were considered.
