CASE STUDY

Bayamón Circular Traffic Pattern

Few intersections in Puerto Rico are as complex and tightly spaced as this portion of State Road PR-177, commonly known as Lomas Verdes Avenue, where it intersects Main, Laurel, and Aguas Buenas avenues, with vehicular volumes in excess of 40,000 vehicles per day. These corridors meet at two intersections packed closely together, one of which has five different approaches.  KEPSC served as an active consultant in this improvement project, providing our expertise in the design of traffic signal systems.  The project has helped in significantly reducing travel times, improving air quality, reduced noise pollution, and improved safety for all users.  These improvements to traffic flow have helped Puerto Ricans save an estimated $13.4 million a year.
