Spring 2009 CE 4211/5211 Traffic Engineering Dr. Henry Liu 2 2. Studies have shown that the traffic flow on a single-lane approach to a signalized intersection can be described by the Greenshields model. If the jam density on the approach is 130veh/mile, determine the velocity of the stopping shockwave when the approach changes to red if the density on the approach is 45veh/mile and the space mean speed is 40mph. At the end of the red interval, what length of the approach upstream from the stop line will vehicles be affected if the red interval is 35seconds?
