Hennepin County Signal Coordination

Project Description


This project provides a demonstration of the benefits of intergovernmental signal coordination between Hennepin County and Mn/DOT.  The objective is to investigate the options for improving signal operations, including increased communications, interconnections, and the development of signal timing plans to determine the optimum timing scheme. The work included investigating advanced detection to minimize delays during off-peak / late night operations, and signal cycle extension to demonstrate the congestion benefits of a truck priority system.
