Better faster smarter

Better, Faster, Smarter

Shortening Project Delivery

  • Planning & Environmental Linkages

  • Legal Sufficiency Enhancements

  • Expanding Use of Programmatic Agreements

  • Use of In–Lieu Fee and Mitigation Banking

  • Clarifying the Scope of Preliminary Design

  • Flexibilities in ROW

  • Flexibilities in Utility Accommodation and Relocation

  • Enhanced Technical Assistance on Ongoing EISs

Technology Innovation

  • Warm Mix Asphalt

  • Precast Bridge Elements

  • Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil

  • Safety Edge

  • Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT)


What have we learned

What have we learned…

  • Systems produce substantial benefits over coordinated TOD signal timing

    • Travel time, Delay, Emissions, Congestion, Safety

  • Most effective where:

    • demand conditions are Variable and unpredictable

    • Linear Arterials, limited success within tight grids

    • Under Saturated


Barriers to adoption of asct

Barriers to Adoption of ASCT

  • Complexity

  • Cost

  • Uncertainty about Benefits


Validation program for asct

Validation Program for ASCT

  • Generic Process and tools to measure any benefits from deployment of ASCT

  • Complementary to the Model System Engineering Document


What is validation

What is Validation?

  • Validation: Objectives are tested

    • Did it do what we want it to do?

  • Verification: Requirements are tested

    • Did we get what we asked for?

Our goals for today

Our Goals for Today

  • Describe the challenges to validate ASCT

  • Describe the theoretical underpinning of our approach.

  • Describe the tools and the process developed to validate ASCT and the plans to test these techniques in Mesa, Arizona.
