Abstract: Multiband is a new arterial progression scheme that has the capability to assign each directional road section with an individually volume-weighted band. The method offers to the traffic engineer a much wider range of design options than do existing arterial progression methods. In this paper we apply the Multiband method to three arterial streets and compare its performance with conventional bandwidth maximization.
