DIAMOND INTERCHANGE TRAFFIC CONTROL. VOL. 15. A COMPARISON OF SIGNAL CONTROL STRATEGIES ON A DIGITAL COMPUTER SIMULATION MODEL

The report presents a comparison of three signal control strategies for operating traffic signals at a diamond interchange complex. The comparisons were made by using a digital computer simulation. The original, field signal timing plan for the interchange complex was used as a baseline for determining the degree of improvement expected with new timing methodology (both fixed time and real-time) developed in other research phases of this project. This publication has been used as a partial basis for justifying the installation of a computer-controlled traffic signal system located at Western Avenue and Santa Monica Freeway in Los Angeles, California.
