Dealing with traffic management for complex crossroads is a challenging problem for traffic control planners. As a contribution to solve this problem, the present paper develops a mesoscopic simulation model for detecting the most suited fire plan for a complex road intersection, using a discrete event simulation tool and an evolutionary algorithm optimization. The modeling goal is to eliminate congestion by choosing an appropriate fire plan which will be adapted to the actual configuration of the intersection, as well as to a future reconfiguration meant to accept a higher inflow of vehicles. The proposed model is applied to a down-town crossroads from Nancy, France. Four different configurations of the input data flow were studied under the proposed simulation-optimization approach, and an optimal fire plan is proposed.
