Sub-problem 1a: Analysis of the existing TWSC intersection

Step 1. Setup

The analysis of transportation facilities can be complex, requiring both the skilled use of standard computational procedures such as the HCM as well as good judgment in the use and interpretation of results from the computational procedures. In the setup of this problem, we will consider the data, the issues, and the tools that are relevant to this problem. In particular, we will consider the analysis of the U.S. 95/Styner-Lauder Avenue intersection under two-way stop-control.

Here are some issues to consider as you proceed with the analysis of the existing intersection and its performance:

bulletWhich tool or tools from the HCM should be used for the analysis of a TWSC intersection?
bulletWhat data are required for the analysis?
bulletWhat default values should be used?
bulletWhat time periods should be analyzed?
bulletWhat measure should be used to determine the performance of the intersection?
bulletWhat other factors should be considered?

Take a few minutes to consider these questions. Click continue when you are ready to proceed.
