This report, prepared for the consulting firm Nelson-Nygaard, analyzes conventional protocols for assessing intersections. Through our analysis, we developed a new protocol which sought to provide a traffic engineer with more descriptive data on an intersection. Our protocol broke up an intersection timeline into phases and then quantified pedestrian behavior through those phases. The intersections of Boylston and Tremont in Boston, MA and Prospect and Mass Ave in Cambridge, MA were used to develop and test our protocol.
