Howard Street Improving Light Rail Travel Times
Contract No: MTA 1117-D, Baltimore, MD - 2015
Sabra & Associates, Inc. (SAI), as a subconsultant, was responsible for studying alternatives, and implementation of traffic signal control changes to reduce Light Rail Transit (LRT) Vehicle travel times along the Howard Street corridor between the Mount Royal and Camden Yards stations. Four major subtasks this project aimed to accomplish are:
The project consisted of field studies and observations, train travel time and speed data collection, analysis of field collected data, summarization of improvements in a technical memorandum, and evaluation of viable alternatives in a tiered approach. Northbound and southbound train trajectories were drawn in time-space diagrams after each level of improvement and were compared to the baseline conditions. The project required hands-on programming and restoration of Opticom/GTT phase selectors, radio/GPS antenna, on-board train equipment, and Eagle controllers.
