Proper designs of offsets forsignalized intersections in an urban arterial system can help improve the level of service (LoS) significantly. The MAXBAND model has been the most widely used approach for this purpose. In this paper, a MAXBAND model in which the lengt hs of phases in a cycle are variable is proposed. In other words, the lengths of phases in a cycle, as well as the cycle itself, are no longer fixed. Besides, theincorporation oftraffic dispersion module in the proposed model allows that the travel times from upstream intersection to the downstream one are taken into account. Real-world application on an arterial system in Taiwanfor evaluating the performance of the proposed model is conducted to validate the methodology. Actual traffic flow data are collected through on-site experiments. Results suggest that the improvements are around 44%, on average, in terms of total delay of the entire network.
