Problem 1: Rietz Union Drive Intersection
We can start to study
the corridor by looking at each intersection and analyzing the current and
planned conditions as a way of developing alternatives to mitigate any
deficiencies, initially at the intersection level. To begin, we will first
analyze existing operations, then proceed to add improvements to quantify
their effects to help select the best set for implementation.
Using the existing
traffic levels and geometric conditions, we can compute the delays and level
of service at this intersection, currently unsignalized, operating under
two-way stop-control (TWSC). As we work through these computations, we will
be able to learn about several aspects of a TWSC intersection in
1a, including the effects of pedestrians blocking the minor approaches.
We will compare the results from
the analysis of existing conditions with those using projected traffic
volumes generated from the new parking structure. We will then investigate some alternatives using information
about the queuing lengths of
different movements, as well as delays and LOS for movements and approaches.
