One of the most challenging aspects of modern day transportation engineers is to mitigate congestion so that delay faced by users is minimum. On the other hand costs associated with congestion mitigation are a big constraint. Particularly, availability of high priced right of way in urban areas motivated transportation engineers to search for alternative designs of intersections and interchanges at minimum cost but better performance in terms of lesser user delays, smaller queues and higher… Expand

Technique for Comparing Operation of Alternative Interchange Types
TLDR
This study described an interchange evaluation technique of sufficient precision to facilitate interchange-type selection or planning-level evaluations of interchange performance, based on the use of characteristic curves that define the relationship between interchange delay and the sum-of-critical-flow-ratios.
