Reviewing for Improvement
Travel time data was collected using Bluetooth data for September 26-29 (Tuesday- Thursday). 4th quarter results show the City maintained its level of service (LOS). There was no change in LOS for any of the peaks.
Per the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual, this metric is calculated as the average measured travel speed over the posted speed limit for the corresponding major corridor (avg. speed / posted speed limit). The calculated value is converted into a percentage and translated into a letter grade indicative of a level of service (A is the best, F is the worst). The slower the measured speed compared to the posted speed limit, the lower the level of service.
Measured major travel corridors include:
State Highway 6 (Dulles to Brooks St.) - 45 MPH
US Highway 90 (Dairy Ashford Blvd. to SH 6) - 50 MPH
Standard Levels of Service are classified by the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual.
A: ≥86% B: 68%-85% C: 51%-67% D: 41%-50%
E: 31%-40% F: ≤30%

The City of Sugar Land's most vital vehicular travel corridors support commercial enterprise and quality of life. Shorter travel times help improve both commercial enterprise and quality of life.
