EVALUATION OF A TRAFFIC ENGINEERING IMPROVEMENT

Traffic engineers need to evaluate the effectiveness of traffic engineering improvements. Procedures for the evaluation are described in the literature, but few applications are available. This paper discusses the combination of road user consequences, including the effects on air quality, and the procedures for the evaluation of one traffic engineering improvement--a Traffic Operations Program for Increasing Capacity and Safety improvement of an intersection. The evaluation of the intersection improvement indicated that the benefit-cost ratio was 1.9 and that the air quality was improved.
