Question details

2. Consider the following weaving section 700 veh/hr 5000 veh/hr 5150 veh/hr 850 veh/hr 1600 ft For all movements, the peak hour factor is 0.97, trucks and buses consist of 5% of the traffic stream, and RVs consist of 1% of the traffic stream. The segment is on level terrain with a free- flow speed of 60 miles per hour (CFL 2300 pcplph) and an interchange density of 1.5 interchanges per mile. Compute the weaving and non-weaving movement volumes, weaving lanes, maximum weaving length, speeds, and other criteria necessary for determination of the weaving section LOS. Assume that 6% of the on-ramp traffic continues to the off-ramp. Also recall that the weaving volume is different for this type of weaving configuration.
