Demand Based Signal Retiming Phase 2 - Real-World Implementation

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Implement and refine the signal retiming and traffic demand prediction methods and procedures in the Traffic Management Center environment for Broward County. This implementation includes assistance to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 4 to assess feasibility and suitability of the proposed approach for inclusion in the first arterial operations contract. (2) Extend the methodology developed under Phase 1, for traffic-data-rich environments such as Central Broward, to areas like West Palm Beach downtown where there is a common level of traffic sensors deployed in the field. This objective includes assistance to FDOT, Palm Beach County traffic division (and other participants) on methods and strategies to monitor traffic in congested downtown West Palm Beach during the reconstruction of the new Flagler Memorial Bridge and the numerous special events that occur.
