Research on Traffic Channelization Optimization of Signalized Intersections Based on the Emission Analysis

This paper examines the problems of organizing traffic at urban road intersections and introduces improvement measures for urban road intersections in traffic engineering theory. The intersection at Xi’an Cuihua Road and Yucai Road is used as an example to study the signal timing program and channelization of signal control at an urban single point intersection. Investigation showed congestion in the intersection; therefore, an optimized channelization scheme was proposed and followed by Vissim software to calculate average delay and average queue length of each approach after optimization. This study also presents a combined emission evaluation index by analyzing (by synthesis) different emission factors. As a result, the average delay of each approach was reduced distinctly, and the comprehensive evaluation index of traffic emissions were also reduced. This study could show a relationship between traffic organization and traffic emission in urban intersections to optimize traffic organization.
