ESTABLISHING WARRANTS FOR CONTROL OF A BICYCLE CROSSING THROUGH SIMULATION (ABRIDGMENT)

A simulation model calibrated from data collected where bicylce cross a two-lane, two-way street was developed for a crossing controlled by a yield sign to bicycles. Experimentation was done with the model to determine delay and queue formation of bicycle traffic. Various levels of motor vehicle and bicycle demands were tested with the model. Situations in which a yield sign to bicycle traffic are ineffective at a crossing are discussed, and warrants for signalization are suggested based on these situations. /Author/
