Developing Hybrid Measures of Performance for Signalized Intersections

There are two generally accepted methods for evaluating performance of intersections in Delaware - a volume based measure using the critical movement summary method and a delay based method, most commonly done using simulation software like Synchro. Each provides unique indicators of the intersections "health", just like a patient with two vital signs. And in general, they are used separately. This research proposes to provide a new, hybrid measure of intersection performance using the two level of service (LOS) measures together.
