Traffic Modeling

The PACOG Travel Demand Model (TDM) helps local officials and the Colorado Department of Transportation evaluate transportation improvements.  Model forecasts provide data on roadway users, and travel patterns across the region.  


The PACOG travel model incorporates a wide variety of data about the region's people, businesses, transportation systems, and development patterns to create tens of thousands of daily trips across the Pueblo region.  The trips are then assigned to the roadway networks to produce estimates of traffic flow volumes and other measures.

Requests to Use PACOG Model

PACOG requires a signed Travel Model-Data Release Agreement
