Dispersion modeling of air quality is a primary regulatory tool for prediction of levels of pollutants in the air. The process of dispersion modeling is routinely used for assessment of the effectiveness of traffic management measures, considering their impact at air quality. In this paper, a methodology for selection of appropriate dispersion model for air pollution research is developed and elaborated. Once selected, the dispersion model has been used for “what-if” analysis, assessing the impact that traffic flow reduction has at air quality. Obtained results clearly underline the irreplaceable significance of properly selected dispersion model for assessment of current and future air quality referring traffic management measures. The intention of this developed methodology is not to make an unnecessary burdening to those who perform and conduct traffic management and air quality assessment. The methodology, above all, should be understood as a tool for upgrading the modeling process and for facilitating the communication between everyone included in the processes of managing and modeling.
