REPORT ON SIGNAL CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR DIAMOND INTERCHANGE
This study was made to determine the comparative efficiency of five signal timing control methods -- Traffic Engineering Method, FHWA Design Manual Method, Fully Actuated Operation Method, Microprocessor with Lagging Left-Turn Method, and Microprocessor with Leading Left-Turn Method. Data were collected by using time-lapse photography. Comparisons among the various methods are made. The results indicate that one method of operation will not perform better than another during all periods of the day. Among the conclusions reached is that the best method of control would be to allow the intersection to operate under actuated control during certain periods and under table look-up conditions during other periods.
