How will buses entering the park and ride lot at the I-75 and Royal Palm Boulevard Interchange traverse the intersection and not impact traffic?
The proposed signal control will be a semi actuated signal. Therefore, the signal phase for bus to access will only be trigged by vehicles from I-75 southbound off ramp (through movement) or Royal Palm Boulevard westbound (left turn movement). This will cause minimal impact to intersection operation. In 2040 under No-Build conditions, the intersection of Royal Palm Boulevard and I-75 southbound off-ramp will operate at LOS E with an average delay of 71.8 seconds during AM peak hour. The intersection will operate at LOS B during PM peak hour. With the proposed Park and Ride Lot, this intersection will operate at LOS E with an average delay of 74.9 seconds during AM peak hour and LOS D during PM peak hour. The average delay will increase by 3.1 seconds compared to the No-Build Alternative during AM peak hour.
