What tools should we
The study will focus on
the procedures prescribed by the HCM for analysis of two-lane highways and
signalized arterials. Arterial analysis also involves the HCM procedures
that deal with signalized and unsignalized intersections. The relatively
simple configuration of this essentially rural facility will allow us to
perform all of the necessary tasks without seeking tools and models that are
more complex than those offered by the HCM.
What analyses should be conducted?
There are many ways to classify traffic analysis problems that
are appropriate for analysis with the HCM. Exhibit 3-3 below includes
seven categories. The kinds of problems that are addressed in this chapter,
within these seven categories,
are highlighted in BLUE.
