Eureka Traffic Simulation

Enjoy this random YouTube find.

Caliper Corporation is pleased to announce the completion of a project to develop a micro-simulation model of the entire Greater Eureka Area (GEA) in Humboldt County, CA. In December 2008, Caliper was selected by the Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG) to develop a micro-simulation model of the GEA in TransModeler, to collect data, and to calibrate and validate the model. The successfully completed model was delivered to HCAOG in March 2010.

    What I see is a very expensive version of Nausea-cam. Where’s the data?

    The day shown in the model was apparently the lightest traffic day Eureka has had since 1946. Could be a decent tool if it slowed the picture down and reflected real-world traffic numbers.

    WTF is that for? Not a single pedestrian or bicyclist. Typical traffic model I guess.

    Can anybody explain anything useful that HCAOG has done for us? This is just another waste of $$ that could be used for public transit or simply given to cities to fix roads.

    It looks accurate if each car shown represents 20 cars.

    Wait until they plug in the Marina Center traffic. Broadway will become a solid line of cars. Throw in a little Forster/Gill and you might as well stay home!

    Snivle, snivle, snivle, why don’t we just put up gates at the north and south entrances to town and wither away.

    OK 69er. I’m with you. Just a minute, I’ll go find my posthole digger and meet you at Branard Cut in an hour. Sometimes “wither away” is better than the stench of too much growth. I want the little town I grew up in. Daly’s, Woolworth’s across the street, Penney’s down at 5th and E, traffic cop in the intersections if 5th and E and F the day after Thanksgiving. I want Eureka back.

    If you’ve got the posthole digger, I’ve got posts and bags of cement. I’ll even buy us all lunch.
