Abstract

Weaving segments are created when merge junctions are followed by diverge junctions on a roadway. When the length of the segment is sufficiently short such that weaving maneuvers induce lane-changing activity that is in excess of that occurring on a comparable basic roadway segment without weaving, a weaving segment exists.
