CONCURRENT PROGRESSION SCHEMES IN MULTIARTERIAL TRAFFIC NETWORKS

Progression schemes are commonly used by traffic engineers for the coordination of traffic signals on arterial streets. Commonly available programs use the traditional approach which consists of a uniform bandwidth design for each arterial. The multi-band criterion, on the other hand, enables us to adapt the progressions to the specific characteristics of each link in the network and thus to obtain improved performance. In this paper we describe the development and application of the multi-band signal optimization scheme in multiarterial grid networks. The proposed model optimizes all the signal control variables, including phase lengths, offsets, cycle time and phase sequences and generates variable bandwidth progressions on each arterial in the network.
