Abstract

This presentation summarized recent research on dynamic lane grouping (DLG). The study found that DLG can reduce intersection delays by up to 40%. However, most intersections do not meet the operational criteria for DLG. Therefore, agencies should apply the recommended screening criteria determined by this study and other cited studies. Benefits are also increased when the DLG movement has a high g/C ratio, good progression, and optimized cycle lengths. The HCM reliability framework (special event dataset method) should be used for DLG analysis in the near future
