Abstract

“Uninterrupted flow” describes a type of facility; it is not a description of the quality of flow on a given facility or segment. Specifically, uninterrupted flow exists on any facility where there are no causes of interruption external to the traffic stream. Thus, a freeway is an uninterrupted flow facility, even when it is operating under breakdown conditions: in such cases, the causes of the interruption(s) to flow are interactions among vehicles that are internal to the traffic stream.
