ASSESSMENT OF THE BENEFITS OF TWO-WAY CENTER LEFT TURN LANES: PHASE 1 - REPORT (REVISED). STATE-OF-THE-ART REPORT

This study contains a review of the state of the art related to assessment of the benefits of Two-Way Center Left Turn Lanes (TWCLTL). A critical review of related published materials and reports has been made and the validity of various papers, based on credible analytic and empirical approaches, has been determined. Parametric summaries have been prepared and included in this report so that the readers can clearly see and understand the usefulness and validity of various published materials. An experimental plan for the Phase II study, for testing the benefits of TWCLTL, is included in this report. Use of a statistically valid test plan is essential in this very important topic where there are many incorrect and marginally correct papers which have influenced the practice in the past.
