Problem 2: U.S. 95
The problem statement remains nearly the same as in Problem 1: should the intersection of U.S. 95/Styner-Lauder Avenue be signalized or
left to operate as a TWSC intersection?
But we will now consider the operation of the intersection as
part of the U.S. 95 arterial system. With this context in mind, we will complete
three computations, using the HCM, to get a better picture of the operation of the
intersection under both TWSC and signal control considering the effects of the
adjacent intersections of Sweet Avenue and Palouse River Drive. We will
also consider a fourth sub-problem in which we look at some of the issues
involved in signal coordination.
In this problem, you will consider the following issues as you
work through the computations for the three sub-problems:
