Sustainable Traffic
Signal Development
Informational Report
ITE announces the release of the Sustainable
Traffic Signal Development Informational
Report. The report explores past, present,
and future practices in the development of
traffic signal installations and their sustainability. The Sustainable Traffic Signal
Development Committee prepared the
informational report as a joint effort under
the guidance of the Sustainability Standing
Committee, the Transportation Planning
Council, and the Public Agency Council.
Answering the question "What is a
sustainable traffic signal development?" the
report defines the term as follows: A sustainable traffic signal development is one that
is planned for, designed, and constructed so
that-when operational-it serves all users,
operators, and other stakeholders in a safe,
efficient, accessible, equitable, and informative way, without compromising the needs
of future generations.
The report reviews warrants and policies
that lead to the installation, modification,
or removal of signals as well as design and
construction methods from a sustainability
perspective. The report identifies cases where
the profession is under utilizing the capabilities of the signal equipment and electrical
systems, and could enhance other public
services, lessen impacts on the environment,
and improve safety through better utilization
of the traffic signal and lighting infrastructure
and brings several questions to light, such as:

*	
*	

*	
*	

Do controller cabinets need to
be so large?
Are communications conduits shared
with other public service providers to
the extent they should be?
Is the best use of excess capacity of
electrical circuits being made?
Are designers and operators maximizing the potential of modern
controllers?

The report discusses emerging technologies being used and planned for use in
traffic signals by looking ahead to the next
half-century and exploring how advanced
driver assistance systems, an aging population, wearable technologies, vehicle to
vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure
(V2I) communications, and other factors will
likely affect traffic signal development, modification or removal. In closing, the report
encourages planners, designers, builders
and operators of traffic signals to look at traffic signal installations more holistically than
just a traffic control device. itej
