Queue Spillovers in Transportation Networks with a Route Choice

  title={Queue Spillovers in Transportation Networks with a Route Choice},
  author={Carlos F. Daganzo},
  journal={Transportation Science},
This paper explores some of the traffic phenomena that arise when drivers have to navigate a network in which queues back up past diverge intersections. If a diverge provides two alternative routes to the same destination and the shorter route has a bottleneck that generates a queue, one would expect that queue to stabilize at an equilibrium level where the travel time on both routes is roughly equal. If the capacity of the alternative route is unlimited then this network can accommodate any… CONTINUE READING
