In this paper, we proposed a new lattice model of two-lane traffic flow considering the effects of traffic interruption probability. The stability condition is deduced from the linear stability analysis for two-lane freeways. Also, the modified Korteweg–de Vries equation is obtained to describe the traffic phase transition resulted from traffic interruption probability through nonlinear analysis in two-lane system. The numerical simulation results validate that the traffic interruption probability further improves the stability of traffic flow on two-lane freeways.
