Transcript of "Effect of Pedestrian Countdown Timer on Safety and Efficiency of Operations at Signalized Intersections Anuj Sharma, Ph.D. Department of Civil Engineering University of Nebraska-Lincoln"

  1. 1. Effect of Pedestrian Countdown Timer on Safety and Efficiency of Operations at Signalized Intersections Anuj Sharma, Ph.D. Department of Civil Engineering University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  2. 2. Objective of Research• Evaluate the effects a countdown timer has on safety and efficiency of operations at an intersection and public view.
  3. 3. Past Literature: Pedestrians
  4. 4. Intersection Selection• Two intersections chosen: – S 17th St & G St (Pedestrian and Drivers) • Northbound Approach • Speed Limit 35 mph – N 27th St & Cornhusker Highway (Drivers) • Eastbound Approach • Speed Limit 40 mph
  5. 5. Pedestrian Data
  6. 6. Driver Data
  7. 7. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed• Probability of Stopping• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  8. 8. Pedestrian Analysis (Only for17th and G)• 861 pedestrians before installation (April-March) (Mean temp 56 F)• 495 pedestrians after installation (Oct-end) (Mean temp 56 F)• Clear weather conditions
  9. 9. Compliance Results
  10. 10. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed• Probability of Stopping• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  11. 11. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed• Probability of Stopping• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  12. 12. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  13. 13. Probability of Stopping at27th and Cornhusker
  14. 14. Important Results• RLR (17 & G): – Before 10 of 429 vehicles ran the red light (2.3%) – After 3 of 422 vehicles ran the red light (0.7%)• RLR (27 & Cornhusker): – Before 7 of 525 vehicles ran the red light (1.3%) – After 8 of 482 vehicles ran the red light (1.6%)
  15. 15. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping: 17th and G• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  16. 16. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping: 17th and G 27th and Cornhusker• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  17. 17. 17th and G
  18. 18. 27th and Cornhusker
  19. 19. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping: 17th and G 27th and Cornhusker• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  20. 20. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping: 17th and G 27th and Cornhusker• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  21. 21. Queue Discharge: 27th andCornhusker
  22. 22. Performance Measures• Pedestrian Compliance• Pedestrian Walking Speed (4.7 ft/s 4.9 ft/s)• Probability of Stopping: 17th and G 27th and Cornhusker• Speed Gain at Stopbar during Yellow Phase• Change in Queue Discharge
  23. 23. Survey: NASIS• 2,032 responses collected
  24. 24. Pedestrian Impact (2032)
  25. 25. Driver Impact (2018)
  26. 26. Conclusions• The empirical evidence in this study support the use of PCT and have found no negative impact at the two sites.• The impact of PCT on the two sites were different implying the interaction of site-specific parameter can influence the results.
