Abstract

In order to mitigate traffic congestions caused by the rapidly increased private car ownership in Shanghai, the transportation agencies implemented several strategies, such as narrowed the lane width to create additional lanes. To investigate the relationship of the lane width to speed, two month of traffic data are collected from 36 sites in the management system of Shanghai expressways. The ANOVA analysis and regression analysis are used to evaluate the effect of average lane width on speed at different levels of service (LOS)
