USING BENEFIT/COST ANALYSIS FOR AUXILIARY TURN LANES FOR NEW ACCESS CONNECTIONS
Documents by Vergil Stover
This paper provides an expansion and explanation of the presentation of the "Design of Right-Turn Lanes" presented in Session 619 of the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board. The paper addresses the operational issues and the design of right-turn lanes. As indicated in the paper, many issues relating to right-turn lanes are the same as for left-turn lanes. Deceleration rates reported in NCHRP Report 780 for left-turns are reasonably consistent with those previously assumed. The rationale for taper length as opposed to taper ratio is discussed.

Chapter 13 of this Handbook, Access Management, was authored by Philip Demosthenes and Vergil G. Stover. Chapter 13 includes an introduction to access management providing an historical perspective, a review of legal issues of interest to traffic engineers, and proceeds to present current practice in policies, programs and access related design elements.
