regarding Chapter 14: Freeway Merge and Diverge Segments

Q1: Page 14-25 paragraph 3. What would be the “queuing analysis” to be conducted if the queue exists on ramps?

Q2: Page 14-19 - Exhibit 14-9: What if the number of freeway lanes is greater than 8?

Q3: Page 14-28 - What would be the value of N0 if number of lanes = 2?
