Museum Road is a major internal connector on the University of Florida campus serving a student population of over 46,000 and an employee base of over 11,000. The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, Florida, which has a population of about 100,000. Alachua County, within which Gainesville is located, has a population of over 200,000.

The University of Florida plans to build a major multipurpose parking structure with approximately 400 parking spaces adjacent to the Reitz Union student activity center. The parking structure will have a driveway onto Reitz Union Drive, which provides direct access to Museum Road. The facility will generate significant traffic along Museum Road. The fact that Museum Road has four intersections with major pedestrian, bicycle and bus traffic, presents some interesting and unique characteristics that lend themselves to exploring a variety of capacity analysis techniques.
