New Directions in Traffic Signal Timing

Participants will earn a total of 1 professional development hour (PDH).

About the Workshop

Traffic signal timing has traditionally focused on vehicle based stops and delay. The Second Edition of the Traffic Signal Timing Manual is based on a new “Outcome Based Process.” Outcome based signal timing focuses on system users, their relative priorities, appropriate objectives and performance measures, and the strategies and timing parameters necessary to achieve the desired outcome. The presentation will outline the overall scope of the upcoming second edition and provide insight into how the outcome based signal timing process is achieved with the overall process of traffic signal timing.
