Develop Annual Arterial Congestion Report

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  06/29/2015


This project demonstrated SMART Signal's ability to automatically generate congestion reports for arterial roads, similar to the congestion report MnDOT prepares annually for the metro freeway system. Arterial congestion reports can provide a high-level view that will allow planners to efficiently deploy resources to address congestion. The four corridors where SMART Signal is installed have a total of 46 intersections and 92 main approaches. In general, these main approaches operate efficiently during peak hours. Only 25 approaches are considered congested at any point during the day. MnDOT has now installed the system on four additional corridors and hopes to continue installing the system on all 15 major arterials in the Metro District and also outside the district.
