Measuring Performance and Effectiveness: What Can You Tell Your Community About How Well Your Signals Work for Them

The measurement of performance and effectiveness of infrastructure meeting stated goals and objectives is a foundational element of an organization’s performance management program. This session provides attendees with example approaches implemented in practice to measure performance of traffic signal systems and to incorporate constructive feedback from the measures back into the program and associated assets.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand analytically based traffic signal performance measures and the basic approach to initiating a program.
  • Describe customer-based measures of signal performance.
  • Identify how traffic signal performance measures can affirmatively support state, regional, and local government response to national performance goals.
