ANALYZING INTERSECTION PERFORMANCE WITH NETSIM

This article describes an application of the Network Simulation (NETSIM) Model to an analysis of a signalized intersection by the Division of Safety of the Utah Department of Transportation, including an analysis of a phasing arrangement which could not be field tested as it was prohibited by State law. The computer simulation results of the Salt Lake City application were accurate enough to warrant further experimentation with the program. The improved traffic signal controller settings determined with the NETSIM simulation were applied to the freeway interchange with a significant improvement in traffic operations.
