In the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, the installation of an Advanced Traffic Management System reduced travel times up to 36 percent.
Initial traffic signal timing was implemented during the installation process and in 2005, the principal retiming work started to further improve travel time conditions. In addition to measuring travel time, other measures calculated include fuel consumption, number of stops, air quality, queue lengths, and average speeds.
- Shields Street travel times were reduced 2 to 17 percent northbound and 7 to 18 percent southbound.
- College Avenue travel times were reduced 20 to 36 percent northbound and 16 to 31 percent southbound.
- Mulberry Street travel times were reduced 11 to 13 percent eastbound and up to 11 percent westbound.
- Harmony Road travel times were reduced up to 19 percent eastbound and up to 4 percent westbound.
