AN APPLICATION OF AN OPTIMAL TRAFFIC CONTROL LANE CLOSURE PERIODS OF A TWO-LANE ROAD

On two lane highways, when provision should be made for alternative one way movement, the traffic characteristics differ from normal operation in which no lane is closed. The purpose of this paper is to derive optimal strategies for controlling, by means of traffic signals, the one lane operation. Strategies to determine the optimal length of the closed one lane section during construction and maintenance are established. The sensitivity analysis of the optimal solution for the section length is examined with respect to the input variables.
