Brief description

This webinar will discuss topics in traffic signal design and operations that agencies should consider when approaching an ATSPM deployment.  Decisions made during the traffic signal design process, such as the use and placement of advance detection, can determine the ultimate capabilities of your ATSPM system. By making design decisions that are in alignment with your agency’s goals and objectives, ATSPM strategies can become another tool to help improve your agency’s traffic operations and signal maintenance.
