DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF FREEWAY SURVEILLANCE AND TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS

Studies of urban traffic operations were conducted on the freeways of Texas to determine the design and effectiveness of traffic control and surveillance systems; to relieve peak period congestion; to lessen the impact of disabled vehicles on the operation and safety of the freeways; and reduce the incidents of overhead structure damage by overheight vehicles. The research study uses demonstration installations to test the implementation requirements as well as to evaluate the operational theory.
