    • WB Mainline (underpass) 2910

      • Left turns – 120

      • Right turns – 415

      • Mainline through – 2375

    • EB Mainline (underpass) 1795

      • Left turns – 245

      • Right turns – 225

      • Mainline through – 1325

    • NB Cross street (over crossing) 1510

      • Left turns – 480

      • Right turns – 120

      • Throughs – 910

    • NB Cross street (over crossing) 1020

      • Left turns – 280

  • Represents junction of principle arterial (55,000 ADT) with minor arterial (25,000)


Arterial interchange

Two signal controlled intersections

Signals on each level to handle left turns from ramps. Right turns have extended acceleration lanes to enter mainline and Yield control to enter cross street. Lower volume left turns from each roadway have complex alignment to create single intersection of opposing lefts while retaining a rectangular bridge shape.


Arterial interchange

Underpass

Cross street follows a ridge. Mainline is lowered under intersection with 17 feet of vertical clearance.


Arterial interchange

FOUR EXIT RAMPSPLIT LEVEL SINGLE POINT (offset intersections)

INTERSECTION DETAILS

Alternative design has separate “conventional exit ramp intersections, but uses one signal controller with “split” phasing for the exit ramp greens, less capacity, but narrower bridge.

Offset single intersection allows for exit ramp lefts to be made concurrently.
