1 Simulation-Based Impact Analysis of Signalized Intersections Kelli Lee S.S/Science Todd Bonds S.S/Science Research Study Site: Intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and Clifton Avenue

2 GOAL : Improve vehicular delay and CO emissions at signalized intersections. Objectives: Identify relationship between vehicles’ delay and CO emission; Identify existing delay and CO emission; Propose solutions to minimize delay & CO emission.

3 Data Collection

4 Methodology

5 Delay and CO Results Correlated patterns on the peaks and valleys; Delay has an obvious impact on the CO concentration.

6 Existing Conditions LOSs of the different movements are unbalanced Overall emitted CO is 44.97g/hr.

This is unacceptable !

11 Conclusions Correlated patterns on the peaks and valleys Existing LOS unbalanced; Southbound left turn unacceptable LOS F. Alternative Solution 1: delay 7.78%, CO emission 4.26%, Alternative Solution 2: delay 14.68%, CO emission 9.68%, Recommendations: Alternative Solution 1 short-term solution Alternative Solution 2 long-term plan
