Intersection Capacity Utilization

Intersection Capacity Utilization

Intersection Capacity Utilization (ICU) method is a tool for measuring a roadway intersection's capacity. It is ideal for transportation planning applications such as roadway design, congestion management programs and traffic impact studies. It is not intended for traffic operations or signal timing design.

Some signal timing software like Synchro report ICU Level of Service. The Level of Service is reported on a scale ranging from "A" to "H", "A" being the least congested condition and "H" being the worst condition.
