This workshop is for anyone who is involved in the design of traffic signals and is looking for hands on instruction for developing traffic signal timing directives. The class will enable participants to 1) successfully review whether a traffic signal is warranted, 2) learn about the analyses that go into installation of a traffic signal (including crash analysis and Highway Safety Manual procedures), and 3) develop traffic signal timing directives for various scenarios from simple to complex intersections, including railroad preemption. This two-day class will cover:

  • Investigation/Data Collection
  • Warrant Analysis
  • HCS/Synchro Analysis (high level overview)
  • Highway Safety Manual
  • Crash Analysis
  • Traffic Signal Timing Basics
  • Traffic Signal Phasing
  • Traffic Signal Operation
  • Developing a Traffic Signal Timing – Step-by-Step
