Abstract

Departure headways at signalized intersections are defined as the time interval between two consecutive vehicle passages over a stop line or any predetermined reference line in the intersection. Departure headways are important parameters in the capacity analysis and signal timing of intersections. Inaccurate headways can create congestion, delays and accidents. Employing a microcomputer and interactive programs to collect, retrieve and analyze data, this study suggests a set of reliable and unbiased departure headwaysfor different queue positions at signalized intersections in the state of Nebraska.
