General Information

G8.1 Project title: Main Street Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures
G8.2 Project description: Install equipment to monitor traffic signal performance. Equipment will include, but not limited to, presence/advanced vehicle detection and signal performance measurement field equipment.

Performance metrics include split failures, arrivals on red, arrivals on green, average delay and travel times. Proposed Main Street project limits include W Pershing Rd to 47th/Cleaver.

This near real time information will allow KCMO to efficiently optimize traffic signal timings along this corridor, which will reduce delays and vehicle emissions. Also, the data collected will essentially provide KCMO a traffic signal "report card", which may prove valuable for interaction with the public.

G1. Project Type: Road & Bridge - Traffic Flow
G2. Funding Stream: CMAQ
G3. TIP Number:
G4. State: Missouri
G5. Project county: 1. Jackson
G6. Project municipality: 1. Kansas City, MO
G7. Multiple agencies / jurisdictions? No
G8.4 Purpose and need: This segment of Main Street is a busy corridor with several nearby activity centers such as the WWI memorial, Crown Center Hotel, and various restaurants/retail locations. The traffic volumes can vary on a daily basis. Using near real time data from Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPM) will allow KCMO to optimize the traffic signal timing for this corridor.

G10. Functional Classification: Minor Arterial
G11. In Transportation Outlook 2040? No   Decade:   --Select--
G12. Muli-Agency Plan? No
G13. Included in a CIP? No
G14. Planning stage: Conceptual Plan
G15. Reviewed by state DOT? No
G16. Right-of-Way acquisition: All acquired or none needed
G17. ROW by local public agency process manual? No
G18. Other unique local goals and objectives? No
This project will support local goal to enhance the efficiency of the traffic signal operations along the corridor.

ATSPMs are a new technology supported by FHWA, and thus would be considered a part of KCMOs Smart City initiative.

G22. Sustainable Places Criteria: ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ------
G22.1. Describe CSP relationship:
G23. Implements Sustainable Places Initiatives? No
G24. Serves Regional Activity Center? Yes
High-Intensity and More_Walkable Centers ATSPMs will facilitate the optimization of traffic signal timings along the project limits. Visitors to the adjacent activity centers will experience less delays when trying to reach their ultimate destination.
G25. Environmental justice tracts? Yes
Project supports coordinated traffic signals and therefore improves traffic flow along the corridor that provides access to and from the environmental justice tracts.
G26. Reduces greenhouse gas emissions? Yes
By optimizing the traffic signal timings from data provided by ATSPMs, KCMO will be able to provide coordinated green time, reducing delays and the number of vehicle hours spent at unnecessary red lights, and thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
G27. Natural Resource information:
G28. Community Links at Watershaed Scale:
G29. Explain local land use or comprehensive plans: This project will satisfy the Citys goal of improving traffic progression and safety. This project includes segments of roadway identified as a Thoroughfare in the Citys Major Street Plan which was adopted by ordinance 110249 on October 23, 2011.
G30.1 Complies with MARC’s CSP? Yes
G30.2 Exception to the MARC CSP? No Project reduces fuel consumption due to delay at traffic signals and thereby promotes efficiency of resources.
