Abstract

The primary objective of this research project is to estimate the safety effects of left-turn phases for different conditions and provide operational recommendations. The operational recommendations will be in the form of a framework that demonstrates how the results of this research can be incorporated into a performance-based analysis of operational and safety trade-offs associated with different left-turn phasing alternatives.
