Urban Arterial Performance Measurement — Proof of Concept

It is a challenge to measure and predict average travel speeds on signalized urban arterials, because urban street often includes multiple signalized intersections, which causes control delay consisting of initial deceleration delay, queue move-up time, stopped delay, and final acceleration delay. This study describes the process being taken by the New York City Department of Transportation to design, test and implement a performance measurement system along Lower Manhattan arterials.
