Can You Drive Slower, but Travel Faster?
Bugs Bunny has a fast car, but so many red lights! Urban Innovators is making it possible for the tortoise to win by getting more green lights! We are leading the nation in a new concept called "Placemaking Alternative Intersections." By converting complicated 4-phase signals into simpler 3 and 2-phase signals, drivers get more green time, which means you can introduce traffic calming without making trips take longer.
See our groundbreaking research for North Carolina DOT. Also see InnovativeIntersections.org.
“Urban Innovators has provided great national leadership -- pioneering new alternative designs that simultaneously improve traffic flow and catalyze walkable development. Really important stuff!”
