INTERSECTION CAPACITY STUDY

ACTUAL SERVICE VOLUMES OF 90 APPROACHES TO 53 INTERSECTIONS IN KANSAS CITY, ST. LOUIS AND SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI WERE MEASURED. THESE VOLUMES WERE COMPARED TO THE THEORETICAL VOLUME COMPUTED USING THE 1965 HIGHWAY CAPACITY MANUAL. VARIOUS CHARACTERISTICS OF THE INTERSECTION AND THE COMPUTED ERROR WERE ANALYZED IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY CORRECTIONS. PERCENT ERROR WAS INVERSELY CORRELATED WITH LOAD FACTOR. REVISED CALCULATION USING STANDARD LANE WIDTHS WAS GENERALLY FOUND TO DECREASE THE PERCENT ERROR. /BPR/
