MULTIJURISDICTIONAL TRAFFIC SIGNAL COORDINATION -- A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE!
The purpose of multijurisdictional traffic signal coordination is to provide the benefits of reduced travel time and increased average speeds on arterial streets within large urbanized areas without regard for jurisdictional boundaries. Too often, local, county and state agencies only focus on coordinating traffic signals within their own jurisdiction without regard for progression across adjacent boundaries or crossing arterial streets. This paper summarizes the experiences and results of a project located in northwestern Orange County, California, involving 160 traffic signals managed and operated by seven separate governmental agencies.
