Abstract

This project studied the junctions of West Boylston, Mountain, and Burncoat Streets, observing traffic trends, collision histories, and signal timings. The information collected through field testing and observations was then organized and analyzed using procedures outlined in the MUTCD and software to analyze the existing conditions. The analysis led to the development of possible design alternatives, which were evaluated in order to determine which would be recommended. This set of recommendations has been sent to the Worcester DPW and intends to improve the overall safety and flow of the intersection.
