Dear Clarke,
Re:
Horse Creek Road Signalization Review
Transportation Engineering Services
As per Alberta Transportation’s request, Bunt & Associates conducted additional transportation analysis
related to the review of the Horse Creek Road/Highway 1A intersection in Cochrane, Alberta. The purpose
of this letter was to review the intersection traffic control along Highway 1A at the intersections of Horse
Creek Road and Heritage Gate, taking into account the proposed developments in the area. The outcome
identified a recommendation for the order in which intersections ought to be signalized, based on current
available information and approvals of development.
BACKGROUND
Bunt & Associates has completed a number of Transportation Impact Assessments (TIA) in support of
developments in the area, most recently including the following:

Mountain Ridge Plaza TIA (September 19, 2014)

Heartland Phases 2 and 3 TIA (May 26, 2014)

Heritage Hills Phase 3D TIA (June 17, 2014)
Each of the above studies assumed the same basic background traffic volumes within the analysis. To
determine the implications of developing all three of these projects, and with due consideration of
expected signalization needs along Highway 1A, a scope of work was established to review how best to go
about organizing the signalization of the three point of access along Highway 1A west of Highway 22. The
program included the following:

Estimate the Opening Day background traffic volumes by superimposing full build out of all
previously approved (DP) uses west of Highway 22 and north of Highway 1A onto the existing traffic
volumes.

Assign the site generated traffic volumes for the proposed Mountain Ridge Plaza, Heartland Phases 2
and 3, and Heritage Hills Phase 3D from the previous studies to the adjacent road network.

Include a sensitivity analysis that assigns traffic to a second access into Heartland as the fourth leg at
the Heritage Gate/Highway 1A intersection.

Complete signal warrant analyses.

Complete a VISSIM traffic simulation for the study area intersections, varying the order of
signalization, in order to identify the most appropriate and effective program for signalization (i.e.
which of the two intersections should be signalized first).
The results are summarized in the sections that follow.
TRAFFIC VOLUME DEVELOPMENT
This section describes the steps followed by Bunt & Associates in developing overall combined Post
Development traffic volumes for use in the simulation of flows along Highway 1A once all of the
considered projects have been developed. While all of the individual developments are “site” traffic in their
own right, Bunt & Associates necessarily separated them into Background and Site traffic volumes based
on their position in the approval process. Again, the main purpose of this letter was to summarize the
results of the post-development simulations, and so this section simply deals with how those total postdevelopment volumes were determined.
Background Conditions
Bunt & Associates obtained existing AM and PM peak hour turning movement counts from the Town at the
intersections of Horse Creek Road/Highway 1A and Heritage Gate/Highway 1A. These counts were
conducted in October 2013 and volumes were balanced between Horse Creek Road and Heritage Gate.
To develop background traffic volumes for Opening Day horizon, full build out of all previously approved
(DP) uses west of Highway 22 and north of Highway 1A were superimposed onto the existing traffic
volumes. The approved but not built development units were added to the existing turning movement
counts as outlined in Table 1.

The Opening Day background traffic volumes were estimated by superimposing full build out of all
previously approved (DP) uses for Heartland, Sunset Ridge, and Heritage Hills onto the existing traffic
volumes.
Additional Site Traffic
Site traffic volumes were identified as those volumes of traffic not already accounted for in the above
noted background volumes. Site traffic for the proposed Mountain Ridge Plaza, Heartland Phases 2 and 3,
and Heritage Hills Phase 3D were sourced from previously completed TIAs. Table 2 outlines the land use
assumptions for each of the three proposed developments while the site traffic volume summary is shown
in Table 3.

This site traffic was distributed based on the source TIA for each of the three developments.
Post Development Conditions
The site-generated traffic volumes were superimposed onto the Opening Day Background traffic volumes
resulting in the total post development traffic volumes that were then used as a basis of analysis in this
exercise.
It is noted that a second access to the Heartland development is expected in the future (as early as 2016)
as the fourth (south) leg of the Heritage Gate/Highway 1A intersection. Since this access will be available,
two scenarios were analysed in this study as follows:

Scenario 1: 75% of Heartland traffic accesses the site along Horse Creek Road while the remaining
25% utilized the new access across from Heritage Gate.

Scenario 2: Access to the Heartland development is split 50% to each of the Horse Creek Road and
Heritage Gate intersections.
The total post development volumes are illustrated in Exhibit 1.

TRAFFIC ANALYSIS
Signal Warrants
With the total post-development volumes established, Bunt & Associates undertook a full signal warrant
analysis based on the methodology outlined in the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Traffic
Signal and Pedestrian Signal Head Warrant Handbook (June 2014). Under TAC methodology, a score of
100 points or more indicates a traffic signal is warranted. A score of 80 points or more indicates that a
traffic signal may be required in the near future and the intersection should be monitored to determine
the exact timing for a signal.
The signal warrant analysis is summarized in Table 4.

As may be seen from the table, the raw warrant scores do identify a need to signalize Horse Creek Road
ahead of the Heritage Gate intersection. However, it is the opinion of Bunt & Associates that signalizing
Horse Creek ahead of Heritage Gate represents a less desirable condition than reversing the order. There
are several reasons for this, as follows:

bunt & associates | 1516-03 | March 25, 2015


Heritage Gate is further east, closer to Town and would logically be signalized before an intersection
on the further extremity of the area (all things being equal), as is the case with Horse Creek.

Although the raw numbers suggest that traffic will be drawn to Horse Creek, this overstates the true
combined impact of the corridor. The critical mass for the area is located between Heritage Gate and
Horse Creek Road, and the vast majority of traffic approaches and departs from/to the east. As such,
if one intersection were to be signalized ahead of another, it would be logical that it be Heritage Gate.

The signalization of Heritage Gate would attract internal traffic away from Horse Creek, as it
represents a more logical internal connection in the short term prior to community build out. With the
introduction of traffic signal just at Heritage Gate/Highway 1A, and retaining unsignalized conditions
at Horse Creek Road, it was assumed that the traffic from the Heritage Hills Phase 3D development
would be drawn to use the signalized intersection. As such, a considerable proportion of the
outbound site traffic from Heritage Hills Phase 3D could potentially be rerouted to the Heritage
Gate/Highway 1A away from Horse Creek Road/Highway 1A.

Input received from the Heritage Hills community during various Open House events in the area
suggested a desire for improved pedestrian and vehicular safety when leaving their community, and
since Heritage Gate was their focus, to signalize Horse Creek would be counterintuitive to community
expectations.
In short, the analysis clearly identified a need for signalization of intersections in the corridor as
development occurs. However, the face value of the analysis does not reflect some of the logic that should
be applied to the order in which intersections are signalized. For this reason, Bunt & Associates undertook
a simulation of the corridor to assess the differences if the order in which intersections were signalized
were to be altered. This is outlined in the following section.
CORRIDOR SIMULATION
Bunt & Associates created micro-simulation traffic models using the PTV VISSIM modeling program. The
aim of this exercise was to compare the benefit of signalizing Heritage Gate/Highway 1A intersection
ahead of Horse Creek Road/Highway 1A intersection. Three models were created to assess the variation in
traffic operation along Highway 1A. Major conclusions for each scenario are detailed below. All three
scenarios were analyzed utilizing the existing lane configuration and PM peak post development volumes.
Table 5 summarizes the average delays and 95th percentile queues at each intersection under three
different scenarios, compiled from multiple simulation runs. The simulation videos can be downloaded
from http://bit.ly/1NGJwWn.

From the results summarized in Table 5 it can be concluded that the two intersections can be expected to
operate within acceptable capacity parameters under typical weekday peak hour conditions, regardless of
whether both are unsignalized, or if one is signalized but not the other.
To this end, despite the fact that the signal warrant data suggested signalization of Horse Creek
Road/Highway 1A ahead of Heritage Gate, there is no obvious benefit to do so. As such, it is Bunt &
Associates’ opinion that since there is no materially significant benefit to signalizing one intersection
ahead of the other, that the Heritage Gate intersection therefore be signalized. This would provide more
immediate benefit in terms of safety and community expectations, as well as setting the stage for longer
term additional signalization at Horse Creek Road.
It is understood that signals will be required along Highway 1A as development progresses on both sides
of Highway 1A, however, it is recommended that the signalization at Heritage Gate/Highway 1A be given
priority over Horse Creek Road/Highway 1A under the current development assumptions.
