dc.description.abstractThis project presents the results of the analysis and evaluation of traffic conditions at two congested intersections Sunny Isle and Sion Farm in Saint Croix, Virgin Islands. They are among the busiest intersections in the island. Traffic signal timings have not been reviewed or modified in recent times. Vehicles are driven on the left side of the road but most of the automobiles on the island have left side steering wheels. Traffic analysis performed reveal that both intersections have a problem of excessive delays and insufficient capacity, particularly in right turn lanes. Alternatives to improve traffic conditions were generated and simulated using AASIDRA and SYNCHRO. Results were analyzed considering several performance measures. At the end of the evaluation process, the best alternative was selected to improve the congestion situation studied.en_US
dc.description.abstractEste informe presenta los resultados del análisis y la evaluación de las condiciones de tránsito realizada para dos intersecciones, Sunny Isle y Sion Farm, en la isla de Santa Cruz en las Islas Vírgenes. Los tiempos de los semáforos no han sido revisados ni actualizados en mucho tiempo. Los vehículos son conducidos por el lado izquierdo de la carretera pero la mayoría de los vehículos tienen el guía en el lado izquierdo. El análisis realizado indica que ambas intersecciones tienen un problema de capacidad insuficiente y demoras excesivas, especialmente en los virajes a la derecha en toda la intersección. Se generaron y simularon alternativas para resolver estos problemas utilizando AASIDRA y SYNCHRO. Los resultados fueron analizados considerando diferentes medidas de desempeño. Al final del proceso de evaluación se seleccionó la mejor alternativa que soluciona el problema de congestión estudiado.en_US
