Traffic Index for Warehouse Parking Lot

Traffic Index for Warehouse Parking Lot

What would the TI be for a warehouse parking lot that will get only 2 trips per day of 80,000 pound trucks and approximately 30 cars?

RE: Traffic Index for Warehouse Parking Lot

Chapter 610 of the Caltrans Highway Design Manual has all the info you need to do the calculation. You can find it at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/oppd/hdm/hdmtoc.htm

The TI calculation is based on truck traffic only, so you can ignore the cars.

BTW, if you do this type of calculation often, it's an easy one to turn into a spreadsheet template.
