A NEW SIGNAL WARRANT FOR PRACTICING TRAFFIC ENGINEERS - TURNING CONFLICTS

This study tries to develop a new signal warrant that will minimize the number of unjustified traffic signals that are "warranted" and provide an easy data collection procedure and produce a warrant that is easy to apply. The new warrant requires peak-hour turning movements for 2-hours in the AM and 2-hours in the PM. This information creates the data to use the "turning conflict" analysis. The warrant is a turn conflict warrant for a "T" intersection and an "X" intersection. A single spreadsheet will be needed to perform this analysis.
