Abstract

The right-turn flashing yellow arrow (FYA) signal phasing is a new signal practice in the United States. The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices MUTCD (2009) allocates a signal phasing section for the right-turn FYA, which requires a four-section head FYA signal. It supports multiple phases' indications that guide the motorist through permissive, protected, and/or permissive/protected phases. For this dissertation, I investigated three permissive right-turn FYA signal phases in various traffic conditions and signal timing circumstances. The first permissive right-turn FYA signal phase is the tight-turn on impeding through (RTOIT) taking place during the cross-street through traffic movement. The second permissive right-turn FYA signal phase occurs during the opposing left-turn approach movement and so is called the right-turn on impeding left (RTOIL). The third permissive right-turn phase is a right-turn on through green impeded only by the side street pedestrians called the right-turn on adjacent through (RTOAT). I aimed to develop warrants leading to efficient implementation of permissive right-turn FYA signal phases based on microsimulation analysis. I developed multinomial logit models to establish a decision support system that predicts the efficiency attributes of the permissive right-turn FYA signal phases.
