Traffic diversion is an effective measure to solve the incidental traffic congestion in urban expressway traffic system. By adopting the macroscopic traffic flow model METANET, this study analyses the state change of traffic flow on the road network and establishes the dynamic traffic diversion model, inducing the redistribution of traffic demand. Considering the changes in the amount of origin-destination (O-D) demand, diversion rate is introduced into the basic theory of dynamic O-D model, and then established a dynamic traffic flow model based on dynamic demand change. The genetic algorithm is used to solve the non-linearity problem of the objective function in the traffic diversion model. This study sets up five cases for numerical analyses, and gets the optimal diversion scheme.
