Sample text

Regional transportation policies should be used to help establish signal timing policies, providing guidance in the development of specific objectives for the implementation of signal timing plans. The development of local signal timing strategies should consider the regional transportation policies to determine if there are regional objectives that will influence the process. These policies may also be consulted to determine their effect on ongoing operations and maintenance activities. (1) {} and Maintenance The plan is typically developed with the help of elected leadership and ultimately represents the attributes the community hopes to address.

There have been some great technological advances in the past five years, such as the development of transit signal priority, which seeks to provide preferential treatment to buses as they approach the traffic signal. This new technology allows the engineer to allocate green time that more closely reflects the community’s transportation policies. The MUTCD also speaks to the issue of efficiency and recommends proper design and signal timing to ensure that it satisfies current traffic demands. The Maintenance of signal timing plans will be described in Chapter 8 of this document.

What data should be collected to develop signal timing? • What should be measured after implementation? • What should be monitored as part of maintenance? Agencies should use their signal timing policies to guide the development, operation, and maintenance of their signal system. 1 Policy Influence on Signal Timing The primary goal of traffic signal timing is to maintain the safe and efficient transfer of right-of-way between conflicting streams of users; however, a safe and efficient system varies within each community’s context as described previously.
