Connectivity or adjacency matrix in ArcGIS?

Hi, I have a student with a research problem that I need some help with.

Student has a basic road network with various road classes from minor up to Interstate. He wants to create an adjacency or connectivity matrix between major nodes along the interstates, across the entire network. His goal is to assign to the major nodes the total number of connections or possible routes between them, and the sum of the vehicle capacity of all those connections.

I've looked at Network Analyst and the schematics tools. I haven't worked with either before and the they don't specifically seem to do anything like this but can't be sure. Any ideas on tools or workflows to follow for this?

Thanks,
David
