This paper presents several new ways of describing the capacity and utilization of an arterial. The paper describes the segment capacity of an arterial. The arterial capacity is developed from traffic volumes and the individual segment capacities. This is presented using a series of arterial profiles which graphically depict the relationship between arterial volumes, segment capacities, and arterial capacity.
