The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is interested in updating the guidance for modeling carbon monoxide (CO) generated by mobile sources at intersections. This document describes the procedures followed and results obtained in evaluating the performance of eight modeling techniques in simulating concentrations of CO at the six intersections monitored as part of the Route 9A Reconstruction Project in New York City. The eight modeling techniques evaluated include: 1985 Highway Capacity Manual Modified CAL3Q Model; Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Intersection Model; Georgia Intersection Model; EPA Intersection Model; California Line Source Model; MOBILE4 Modified Volume 9 Technique; Texas Intersection Model; and Intersection Midblock Model. The ultimate objective of this study is to determine which of the eight intersection modeling techniques most accurately simulates the highest measured CO concentrations and whether the performance of that technique is significantly different than the other modeling techniques.
