Replica in Action

Highway Improvement Feasibility Study

Highway Improvement Feasibility Study

Texas DOT

TxDOT initiated the “I-610 South Feasibility Study” to understand ways to improve safety and connectivity, address aging infrastructure, and make plans for future growth.

The study evaluated existing traffic operational conditions and patterns by using Replica data to conduct a zonal origin-destination and select link analysis. Replica data made it possible to understand how people are actually using the corridor, including trip purposes, work/home locations, and time of day distributions.

EV Charging, Equity, and NEVI Funding

Illinois DOT

IDOT integrated Replica with Justice40 and US DOE datasets to evaluate existing and planned EV charging stations relative to the travel patterns of lower-income, minority populations.

Through this analysis, IDOT identified corridors with sufficient charging stations, corridors with the highest need for new charging stations, and corridors where the lack of existing infrastructure most impacted Community of Concern residents' ability to get to work. Replica's equity-centric data has allowed IDOT, NYSDOT, and others to inform NEVI, SMART, ATTAIN, and other federal grant applications.

Complete Streets Planning

Complete Streets Planning

Tennessee DOT

TN DOT used Replica’s network-link level active transportation data to investigate changes in bicycling and pedestrian activity in Nashville over time.

The study looked at seasonal differences as well as pre- and post-COVID comparisons, to understand the potential return on investment of new infrastructure.

The work ultimately created the justification for a Complete Street Project on Dickerson Pike, demonstrating how it could bolster growing trends, encourage mode shift, and benefit the communities surrounding Dickerson Pike
