Access Management Considerations at Four Innovative Intersections

Abstract:

Topics

  • New Jersey Jughandle Intersection (NJJI)

  • Displaced Left Turn Intersection (DLF)

  • Median U-Turn Intersection (MUT)

  • Restricted Crossing U-Turn Intersection (RCUT)

Summary

  • All unconventional intersection designs are conceived to take advantage of the local traffic pattern

  • Their main design objectives are to improve LOS of critical movements, maintain or improve overall safety at main intersection, and generate tolerable delays to non-critical movements

  • Ped/bike traffic are considered in the designs

  • Local business without shared parking and driveway may be negatively affected

  • Shopping centers with ample parking and consolidated driveway will attract more traffic and benefit
