Traffic Signal Operations, Part 2

Course | October 30 – 31, 2013 every day | 8 a.m.-5 p.m. | National University Sacramento (NEW) #116, Computer Lab

10901 Gold Center Dr., Rancho Cordova, CA 95670

Technology Transfer Program

This two-day course focusing on advanced signal operations topics, will enable you to develop and evaluate performance of two types of traffic signal coordination -- time of day and traffic responsive systems. This course also introduces the advanced traffic adaptive system. For time of day and traffic responsive systems, attendees learn how to determine good timing and coordinated solutions with innovative approaches for managing vehicle queues, turns, and potential gridlock situations, how to find optimal timing solutions, and how to safely accommodate non-motorists. Students will work on signal timing plans using several signals along arterials including freeway interchange signals; assess whether more complex timing solutions offer operational improvements; solve specialized problems such as offset intersections and diamond interchanges; and learn to perform analysis and evaluation of traffic volumes and field checks. The operational concept for traffic adaptive systems will be introduced and results compared with results from the time of day and traffic responsive plans. A basic knowledge of SYNCHRO is helpful., 510-643-4393
