Transportation - Planning and Programs Division - Origin-Destination Tables
Scope and Contents
This series consists of a 23%" X 21%" bound volume containing essentially traffic count tables compiled from a Metropolitan Atlanta Special Origin- Destination Study conducted in 1940 and 1941 by the Division of Planning of the State Highway Board of Georgia. This was done in conjunction with the Public Roads Administration, Work Projects Administration, Fulton County and the City of Atlanta. The tables were completed in 1942. The volume contains a table of contents which lists as subject headings (1) a map of Metropolitan Atlanta area showing stations and zone locations, (2) table numbering system, (3) explanation of terms used in table titles, (4) stations of entry showing station numbers and road/street names and (5) listing of table headings with page numbers. The field survey covers both automobile and truck traffic flow in the Metropolitan Atlanta area and shows the early method of vehicle counting for future road and traffic planning. Also shown is the type of traffic patterns and typical destinations back in that particular time. The surveys are plotted on a specialized grid sheet with the total number of stops (necessary, trivial and none) listed in the extreme right-hand column. Most of the tables are for outbound traffic and show listings for the four seasons of the year.
