MCDOT : Intersection Safety Evaluations
YSMA evaluated over two dozen signalized and un-signalized intersection to mitigate the high crash rates.
Some of these intersections serve very high traffic volumes including the Bell Road corridor, which is one of the busiest corridors in Maricopa County with nearly 60,000 daily vehicles.
Through operational analysis of intersection characteristics, environmental and roadway factors, and driver behavior, we identified appropriate countermeasures.
The recommendations resulted in re-evaluation of traffic signal timing, improved progression, signing and striping along the corridors, and improved visibility in darkness.
