Recognizing the great fuel conservation potential of optimizing signal timing, FHWA's Washington office undertook the National Signal Timing Optimization Project. The objectives of this project were two fold. First--to establish credible data on the effectiveness of signal timing, and second--to define the cost, level of staff, computer time and capability required to undertake a signal timing optimization project such that decision makers can more effectively budget for this activity. In order to accomplish these two objectives FHWA's Washington office undertook two major activities. First--they got involved in revising the TRANSYT signal timing optimization program and in providing training in its use. The second activity was to apply the program in 11 cities around the country.
