This study evaluates air quality improvements based on transportation analysis models. Potential air quality reduction alternatives can be compared by analyzing changes in local emissions and the corresponding predicted impacts on public health. The results for evaluation came from the run of two main models such as emission and air dispersion. Finally, a health impact analysis was compared to the comprehensive air quality index suggested by the Korean Ministry of Environment. This study demonstrates the validity of the results using a case study examining alternative traffic operational strategies in Korea. The most significant reason for applying such an evaluation in the transportation sector is the estimation of the total amount of pollutant emission by means of different level of analysis using traffic simulation to enable the development of an inter-linking analysis system for dispersion models. Eventually, those models can be applicable to transportation alternatives to identify the effects of different traffic environments.
