Sub-problem 3b: Operational
Analysis of the Center Section of Krome Avenue (Class I or II Two-Lane
HCM Chapter 20 procedure has given an overall level of service for this
facility, based on the performance measures for two-lane roadways. This
procedure does not recognize any intersection-related problems. Therefore, a
complete assessment of the facility requires a check of all intersections to
ensure that problems are not being overlooked. The proper procedures to
apply to intersections are found in HCM Chapter 16 (signalized) and 17 (unsignalized). The details of the intersection analyses will not be presented here.
Apart from the northern
boundary at Kendall, which was mentioned in
sub-problem 3a, the only operational problem was found at
Biscayne. This is an unsignalized intersection with the cross street operating under
stop control. Signalization will be required to overcome this deficiency.
The signalized intersection analysis will not be
covered in this case study.
