INTERGREEN INTERVAL CONTROVERSY: TOWARD A COMMON FRAMEWORK (WITH DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE)

The chronological development of the most commonly used intergreen interval formulas is traced and a disparity is disclosed between the interpretation presumed by ITE and that originally proposed by Gazis et al. A realistic example clearly shows that proper application of the speed-location diagram introduced by Gazis et al. can enhance the traffic engineer's judgment and can provide a consistent means of reporting research-related observations. The speed-location diagram of the intergreen interval problem must be adopted as a standard tool by traffic engineering practitioners and researchers.
