TITLE/TOPIC: Pima Intersection Control Evaluation Spreadsheet (PICES)

PRESENTER: Steve Wilson (PCDOT) & Felipe Ladron de Guevara (Kittelson & Associates, Inc.)

LOCATION: Pima County Safety Conference Room, 1313 S. Mission Road

PICES is a spreadsheet tool that Pima County and Kittelson developed to evaluate traffic control alternatives at intersections. The intersection alternative evaluation is based on a life-cycle cost analysis that accounts for both user costs (delay and safety) and infrastructure costs (construction, operations, and maintenance). PICES is capable of evaluating the following intersection control alternatives: two-way stop, four-way stop, traffic signal, roundabout, continuous flow, Michigan left-turn, and unsignalized restricted crossing U-turn. The spreadsheet was developed in Visual Basic and has been used to evaluate several intersection treatments in Pima County.

Please RSVP for this meeting by Wednesday, March 21 at 6:00 PM to SAITE@outlook.com. Remember, students are free, and cost is just $10 for everyone else. We hope to see you there!
