It’s all in the timing

UDOT and Bountiful City have worked together to improve signal timing at major intersections.

A young pedestrian crosses at Main Street and Fourth North. Wait times are shorter and east-west travel is more efficient now east of the freeway in Bountiful.

Drivers in Bountiful, Utah now have shorter wait times at UDOT and Bountiful City intersections. Mat Luker, Assistant Signal Systems Engineer with UDOT worked closely with Bountiful City Engineering to re-time signals to reduce delay and provide longer left turn cycles in intersections east of the freeway.

“UDOT is a great partner and we appreciate them very much,” says Assistant Bountiful City Engineer Lloyd Cheney. Drivers in Bountiful should be seeing less delay while driving to the freeway during peak travel times. “Those who go east and west should see improvement.”

    Bountiful,Utah is such a pretty city that keeps growing every year!. Gridlock will be helped by re-timing the traffic signals. Now if they could just widen Interstate 15..

    While sitting at many traffic lights I have often wondered if it would be faster if the timing was changed so each side got more time to cross as this means there are fewer transitions from stop to go so in theory more cars are able to get across the crossing in the same time frame.

    Funny here in europe we have roundabouts and not intersections therefore our roads need less lights, only ones for pedestrians. Having used both I think rounabouts are much better than intersections.
