Sub-problem 2c: Analyzing the Effects of Coordination

Step 1. Setup

The previous analyses assumed fully actuated signal control. With adjacent signalized intersections located close by, coordination would be desirable. This Sub-problem provides an opportunity to compare the effects of operating the Museum Road/Reitz Union Drive signal as fully actuated with the effects operating it under semi-actuated control. A constant cycle length can be maintained if the intersection is operated under semi-actuated control, thereby allowing coordination with the other signals along Museum Road. In an HCM analysis, the factors affected in this comparison are arrival type, progression factor, unit extension, and the k-value.

Take a few minutes to identify why the factors mentioned above will be affected in this comparison. Click continue when you are ready to proceed.
