The Statewide On-Call Traffic Engineering assignment for ConnDOT has tasked BETA to develop compliant Traffic Signal clearance timing for District 3. This project has resulted in BETA accumulating all traffic signal plans for this assignment area and evaluating clearance timing. This project is being undertaken by the State as a safety project to insure appropriate signal clearance timing consistent with MUTCD standards are in place.
A second assignment under this On-Call will have BETA measuring safe speeds for horizontal curves on State Highways in District 3. This process will measure the comfortable speed for advisory posting at curves and is considered a critical safety effort to be done on an expedited basis. ConnDOT has recognized BETA’s ability to complete complex and data intensive projects by assigning inventory and analysis projects involving the documentation of over 400,000 signs and 1100 traffic signals.
The areas in which Tasks will be forthcoming include:
- Operational Analysis and Design of Traffic Signals & Signal Systems
- Signing and Pavement Markings
- Traffic Engineering Related Studies
- Maintenance and Protection of Traffic
- Rail Highway Grade Crossings
