Development of Corridor-based Traffic Signal Preemption Strategies at Signalized Intersections near Highway Railway Grade Crossings

This project will examine existing and new Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) based train preemption strategies that will improve safety and reduce delay along highway/railway corridors. Network-wide measures of effectiveness (MOEs) including average network delay, network travel time, and network traffic outflow will be used to guide the research. As part of this work the stochastic characteristics of train arrivals and train lengths will be accounted for explicitly.
