**Abstract:**

We consider a traffic light controlled intersection. First we
construct a model that describes the evolution of the queue lengths
(as continuous variables) in each lane. Next, we discuss how optimal
and suboptimal traffic light switching schemes (with possibly variable
cycle lengths) for this system can be determined. We also show that
for a special class of objective functions suboptimal traffic light
switching schemes can be computed very efficiently.
