Signals are important traffic control devices that, if designed and operated consistent with multimodal policies, can encourage walking and cycling. They also have a significant impact on speed, an important factor in having a street that works for all users. Established techniques and new technology for optimizing signals can help create a safe, efficient multimodal transportation system. Attend this webinar to learn how to evaluate traffic signal functions and determine what strategies can be used to make them more effective for your community.
• Recognize how policies and mode-share targets help to create a framework to prioritize signal projects
• Understand the factors that affect signal timing in downtown areas
• Learn strategies to manage speed and reduce delay for cyclists and pedestrians with signals
• Hear about developing technology for signals
