This project, prepared for the Autoridad de Carreteras y Transportacion of San Juan, Puerto Rico, provides an analysis of the PR-181 corridor in Trujillo Alto along with recommendations to install a Busway. This project focuses on three main areas: assessing terminal location and design, identifying intermediate bus stop locations and design, and evaluating the road conditions. Issues were identified at each of the major intersections that will pose a problem for the integration of the Busway and PR-181. These issues lead into formulating ideas and recommendations on how to better manage the traffic and improve the quality of life in Trujillo Alto.
