Problem 1: Rietz Union Drive Intersection
Next, we will consider
whether signal control offers a viable solution to the future conditions by
analyzing the intersection controlled by a traffic signal in
Subproblem 1b
to:

Analyze
actuated control of the existing fourleg intersection. 

Compare
the actuated signal with the TWSC scenario. 
In
Subproblem 1c, we
will consider the effects of pedestrians and bicycles on the signalized
intersection, then look at geometric improvements to mitigate any negative
effects. So, we will analyze:

Actuated signal control with and without pedestrians and bicycles. 

Actuated signal control of a Tintersection with additional turn lanes. 
We can then compare
the overall operation of the TWSC versus the signalized intersection to
better understand and recommend which implementation offers the better
solution.
Our goal in Problem
1 is to investigate a variety of possible smallscale solutions to help
alleviate the congestion created by
the traffic generated by the new parking structure. Subsequent problems will
look at the other alternatives for this intersection (in Problem 2).
