Welcome to the Urban Traffic & Economics Lab (UTEL) at UIUC’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, run by Dr. Lewis Lehe.

Check out TrafficVis to play with games that teach introductory traffic engineering concepts.

The group is focused on understanding the interplay of traffic physics and human choices on city streets. We do a lot of programming, but the overall goal is to publish well-written, creative articles in top journals that can inform better urban policies.
