Assessing Bicycle Delay at Signalized Intersections

A conceptual model was derived to assess bicycle delays at signalized intersections. The model incorporates approach traffic volume, adjacent traffic speed, and easy to obtain signal timings from Synchro traffic models to determine bicycle delay for left turn, through, and right turn movements. The model is conceptually grounded in research conducted by Plumert et al. (2007), which assessed the relationship between vehicle gap size and the likelihood of a cyclist crossing a stream of traffic. Quantifying bicycle delay allows planners and policy makers to locate and address problematic intersections or corridors, select effective treatments, plan proactively, and better prioritize resources. Field observations are required to operationalize the model. (A) For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD record number 201309RT334E.
