    Boulder hwy adaptive system

    Boulder Hwy Adaptive System

    • SCATS installed late 2008

      • 10 intersections (8 on Boulder Hwy, plus 2 off)

  • Communication was a challenge

  • Detection reworking was a challenge

  • Not exactly a success (or failure)

    • Before-and-After showed no great improvement

    • Seems to require more maintenance ‘babysitting’

    • No plans to expand SCATS
