Abstract:

In surveys of practitioners and national experts completed by the FHWA, it was recognized that no clear definition of traffic signal operations has been developed and no consensus appears to exist as to what activities are required to support traffic signal operations. The lack of a concise definition of traffic signal operations provides some insight into why practices, staffing levels, objectives and performance measures are divergent in this area. Operating agencies clearly understand the requirements for adequate traffic signal maintenance. The results of several surveys indicate that many agencies tend to be primarily focused on maintenance activities, with most of their attention focused on keeping traffic signals operating (turning green, yellow and red) and little attention on making the operation efficient on a 24/7 basis. This has some safety implications and contributes to millions of hours of unnecessary traffic delays and congestion.
