**Problem 2: Reitz Union Drive Intersection Improvement
Strategies**

Printable Version

Continuing our
analysis of the Reitz Union Drive intersection, we will now look at some
additional options under signal control. We can first analyze operations of
the improved intersection with no northbound approach and two exclusive
right-turn lanes southbound, using an actuated, two-phase signal with a
120-second cycle. Then, we can investigate improvements to this design to
quantify their effects as input to choosing alternatives to potentially
minimize congestion.

Continuing to use future
traffic projections and the improved geometric conditions suggested in
Sub-Problem 1c, we can compute the
delays and level of service at this signalized intersection, assuming that
it is operating under
fully-actuated control. As we work through these computations, we will be
able to investigate several aspects of an actuated signal.

We can first look at
some options to test phasing alternatives to accommodate pedestrians. Such analyses will allow us to quantify the effects of these signal modifications
toward resolving these issues using:
