The purpose of this study was to perform an analysis of a campus intersection with both high traffic and pedestrian volumes focusing on both traffic operations and safety. A camera was placed at the intersection of Campus Dr. and Chapel Dr. and data was collected for a total of four weekdays while classes were in session. Vehicle movements and vehicle/pedestrian interactions at the crosswalk were observed. The data was used to make the following analyzes: determining of vehicle turn movements at the intersection, analysis of all-way stop warrants based on these movements, determination of the percentage of vehicles that do not come to a complete stop at the intersection, the volume of students who use the crosswalk each day categorized into 15-minute Intervals, and the identification of vehicle/pedestrian interactions at the crosswalk and if these interactions are safe, moderate, or unsafe.
