EFFECT OF ICE AT INTERSECTIONS ON OPTIMAL SIGNAL TIMING FOR URBAN ARTERIALS

The principal aims of the research project were: To determine saturation flow rates for an urban arterial under icy conditions. The measurement of startup lost times, were also included; To determine an optimal signal timing plan for an urban arterial using the saturation flow rates and start-up lost times obtained under icy conditions; To compare the signal timing plan developed for the same arterial but using saturation flow rates and start-up lost times for dry, bare pavement conditions.
