SPR 20-594: Intersection Control Evaluation Methods

Grants and Contracts Details


Intersection Control Evaluation refers to the decision-making process and framework that a growing number of transportation agencies are adopting to provide a more balanced or holistic approach to the consideration and selection of access strategies and concepts during transportation planning, project identification and initiation processes that contemplate the addition, expansion or "full control" of intersections. ICE approaches have been used to • emphasize key performance outcomes, cost-effectiveness and sustainability instead of the historical reliance on intersection control warrants • Effect a departure from the pre-selection or reliance on traffic signals and the widening they require along approach roadways • Mainstream the consideration of innovative intersection alternatives that are proven but under-utilized (such as the DDI, roundabout & J-turns). This project will identify and explore Intersection Control Evaluation (ICE) methods and tools in use by other states, to assist KYTC in identifying cost effective, safe and efficient intersection and interchange alternatives.
