The demand for s’mores is high. Now figure out the demand for traffic!
Teams in Group 3 will head up to the Transportation Computer lab to compete in the computer and written portion of the competition.  No spectators will be allowed for this competition.

Bring the following for your competition:
  • ITE Trip Generation Handbook 
  • 3 single sided 8.5”x11” note pages 
  • Scratch paper 
  • Calculators (maximum 3)
  • Writing Instruments
Traffic Trailblazers will occur in 2 phases. The order of these phases will be determined when you arrive.

Phase A: Trip Generation.  Check the Trip Gen example file for a sample problem. Note that the actual competition will involve more than one site

Phase B: HCS Signal optimization.  The only modifications to the file are to be made to the input fields in the Phasing and Timing sections. Using HCS optimization will not be permitted.  The goal is to reduce both the total overall delay and the maximum movement level delay.
