Traffic Signal Timing 101: The Basics of Local Intersection Control – Part 1 of 3

July 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Florida LTAP Center presents this webinar series on Traffic Signal Timing 101 – The Basics of Local Intersection Control. This is Part 1 of a 3-part series. In this first session, we will introduce the course objectives, goals, and glossary of terms. The following topics will be covered: Traffic Flow Theory, Greenshields Equation for Discharge, Saturation Flow Rate, Lane Capacity, Intersection Capacity, Through Movements, Left Turn Movements (Protected, Permitted, Protected/Permitted), Vehicular Intervals, and Pedestrian Intervals.

This webinar series is divided into three two-hour webinars designed to provide participants with an understanding of the operation of local intersection signal controllers and the various timing parameters needed for the safe and efficient operation of the intersection. This series addresses local intersection control operations; a subsequent series will cover the basics of detection, preemption and priority, and signal coordination.

◼️ Understand basic traffic flow characteristics and roadway capacities as they relate to signalized intersections.
◼️ Understand intersection phasing needs and the timing interval components of each phase.
◼️ Understand controller ring structure
◼️ Recognize the different types of signal controllers and how they can be used for intersection operations.
◼️ Understand the ring-based structure of controllers and how signal phase sequences can impact operations.
