Currently, the preferred concept is known as a "Continuous Flow Intersection." This innovative and cost effective design can relieve congestion for travelers, increase safety for pedestrians and increase access to local businesses at this gateway intersection.
- At-grade intersection (much more cost-effective than grade separation)
- Left turns happen in advance of the intersection allowing for multiple movements to take place simultaneously
- Eliminates a signal phase at the intersection (increasing efficiency and capacity)
