Development and Testing of Variable Speed Limit Control Logics for Work Zones Using SimulationAbstract:
This study is an attempt to evaluate the performance of various speeds at work zones and to develop VSL control logics that would calculate suitable speeds for different traffic conditions. The research is conducted by simulating a postulated test-bed network and then validating the results by simulating a real world work zone site. The study uses a microscopic simulation model – VISSIM.
