Guide for Intersection Control Evaluation


Guide for Intersection Control Evaluation

(NCHRP 17-98)

A variety of intersection control evaluation processes and metrics are used by highway agencies for evaluating safety, operational, multimodal, environmental, and right-of-way considerations, in addition to cost impacts. However, there is no widely accepted procedure or guide for evaluating new intersections or modifications to an intersection. Equitable Cities and Kittelson & Associates developed a guide that incorporates rational processes, objective performance metrics, and appropriate tools to provide a consistent and objective intersection control evaluation. This guide will help highway agency personnel in making decisions regarding intersection type and control, and implementing safer, more balanced, and more cost-effective solutions.
