Traffic Signal Program Handbook

state a fact about the project

This project was to develop a Traffic Signal Program Handbook. The purpose of this handbook is to advance the use of objectives and performance-based approaches to traffic signal management and to improve design, operations, and maintenance practices, resulting in increased safety, mobility, and efficiency for all users. This handbook is divided into two parts. Part I focuses on how to develop an effective traffic signal program by describing the elements of a traffic signal program (chapter 2) and how to assess and improve the level of maturity of the program’s capabilities (chapter 3). Part II focuses on the systems and technologies associated with a traffic signal program, specifically the systems and technologies agencies may want to deploy to achieve various program goals and objectives.
