Recently a client contacted us regarding how we use the Vistro software for mitigation on a particular project.  In the following 15-minute video study, we review a busy commuter route where a new school is being developed. This route has signals at each end and multiple access points to the major road. In Vistro we review our a.m. and p.m. peak scenarios while also considering near term and long term scenarios. In the video we’ll walk you through how we analyze a Level of Service data table to determine any necessary traffic changes and we’ll discuss a variety of scenarios to optimize signal timing.
