There is a need for improved techniques for estimating the performance of right-turn-on-red (RTOR) movements at signalized intersections.
NCHRP Research Report 1068: Right-Turn-on-Red Site Considerations and Capacity Analysis: Practitioner's Guide, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, presents two methods for estimating RTOR volume and capacity, and a spreadsheet tool to facilitate the use of these methods. The report also presents guidance on when to prohibit RTOR at a given intersection.
Supplemental to the report is NCHRP Web-Only Document 368: Right-Turn-on-Red Operation at Signalized Intersections with Single and Dual Right-Turn Lanes: Evaluating Performance, a presentation, a spreadsheet tool, and a Computational Engine with RTOR.
