TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2259 consists of 24 papers that explore traffic signal control, arterial offset optimization, coordination of arterial traffic signal, arterial signal phases and progression quality, coordinated system operation, the benefit of retiming traffic signals, modeling variability of urban travel times, intelligent traffic signal system for isolated intersections, and turn pocket blockage and spillback models.
This issue of the TRR also examines measuring signal phase utilization, stop bar traffic flow state, varying traffic flows, improvements in dilemma zone protection, estimating signalized intersection delays to transit vehicles, predictive priority for light rail transit, and integrated control of freeway interchange model.
In addition, this TRR addresses traffic signal optimization, factors contributing to dilemma zone at high-speed signalized intersections, intergreen times, automated intersection control, wireless magnetometers, optimal arterial control strategies, and innovations in sensor technology
