This course for Highway and Traffic Engineers focuses on determining the number of lanes required for an acceptable Level Of Service for each approach lane to an signalized intersection. A set of Rule of Thumbs are used to determine lane configuration for each approach prior to starting the actual intersection design. The design engineer will be able to determine the actual number of lanes required for left turns, thru movements, right turns, and to estimate the length of queue for each approach. Examples will explain the method of design to determine an acceptable Level of Service.

Students of this course will be able to actually determine the number of lanes for each approach to an intersection, the Level Of Service for each approach lane, including the queuing length for each lane and its required vehicle storage length.

At the conclusion of this course, the student will be able to determine:

  • The number of thru lanes required
  • The number of left turn lanes and their storage length
  • If the travel way can accommodate the purposed number of lanes
  • Use basic Rules of Thumb to aid in intersection design
