Problem 1 [20 points] Consider two one-lane roadways that merge into a single one-lane roadway, as shown below. { visualize here a merge with approach links labeled a and b } If there are queues on both approaches (segments a and b ), and if neither approach is metered, then the merge ratio is 1:1. Segments a , b and c each have a capacity of 2,000 vph. The time-dependent demands (i.e., virtual arrival rates) for the two approaches are as given below. Segment a Segment b V 1 (t) = 1,500 vph, 0 < t < 1 hr V 1 (t) = 1,000 vph, 0 < t < 1hr V 2 (t) = 1,000 vph, t > 1 hr V 2 (t) = 0 vph, t > 1 hr Note that during the time interval 0 < t < ½ hr, approach b is metered, such that its
