As City Traffic Engineer for the City of Independence, GPD performed an initial review of the System Analysis that was prepared in conjunction with the Hillside Road signal reconstruction project and identified several areas of concern related to the proposed signal operation. These concerns were realized following implementation of the new signal timing plans as the City was inundated with public complaints related to the operational changes. The City ultimately requested GPD to correct these ongoing issues by providing new timing patterns that could replace what had recently been implemented by the contractor’s traffic consultant. Within one week of receiving the request, GPD developed a new timing scheme that was found to mitigate the ongoing issues and achieve the initial goals of the project.
