Although many of the intersection design examples are in urban areas, the principles involved apply equally to design in rural areas.

Some minor design variations occur with dif- ferent kinds of traffic control, but all of the intersection types shown lend themselves to cautionary or non-stop control, stop control for minor approaches, four-way stop control, and both fixed-time and traffic-actuated signal control. Right- turn roadways without stop or yield control are sometimes provided at channelized intersections.

Such free-flow channel- ized right-turn lanes should be used only where an adequate merge is provided.

Where motor vehicle conflicts with pedes- trians or bicyclists are anticipated, provisions for pedestrians and bicycle movements must be considered in the design. Channelized right-turn lanes have a definite role in improving operations and safety at intersections; however, at locations with high pedestrian volumes In built-up areas, the use of free-flow channelized right-turn lanes should be considered only where significant traffic capacity or safety problems may occur without them and adequate pedestrian crossings can be provided.

Where channelization is provided, islands and turning roadways should be designed to accommodate the wheel tracks of each vehicle movement while providing optimum cross- ing paths and storage for pedestrians within the proposed inter- section. The simplest form of channelization is accomplished by increasing the corner radius between the two roadways sufficiently to permit a separate turning roadway that is separated from the normal traveled ways of the intersecting approaches by an island as shown in Figure A and C.

The approach roadway may include a separate right-turn lane leading to the turning roadway for the accommodation of right-turn traffic. Often the provi- sion for a separate lane for left turns or for through movements to bypass left-turning traffic is appropriate on two-lane highways where right-turning roadways are justified. Left-turning traffic can be accommodated by the flaring of the through highway as shown in Figure B and C. The right-turning roadways should be designed to discourage wrong-way entry while providing suffi- cient width for anticipated turning trucks.

Figure B depicts a channelized intersection incorporating one divisional island on the crossroad. Space for this island is made by flaring the pavement edges of the crossroad and by using larger- than-minimum pavement edge radii for right-turning movements.

Figure C shows an intersection with a divisional island and right-turning roadways, a desirable configuration for intersections on important two-lane highways carrying intermediate to heavy traffic volumes e.

All movements through the intersection are accommodated on separate lanes. Where the traffic demand at an intersection approaches or exceeds the capacity of a two-lane highway and where signal con- trol may be needed in rural areas, it may be desirable to convert the two-lane highway to a divided section through the intersection, as shown in Figure C.

In addition to adding auxiliary lanes on the through highway, the intersecting road i. The right-turn lane in the upper right quadrant accommodates a non-restricted exit from the major route. Figures B and B provide examples of bypass lanes, which are added to the outside edge of the approach, allowing through vehicles to pass left-turning vehicles on the right, while Figures C and C show traditional left-turn lanes.

Regardless of the treatment, consideration of traffic demand, delay savings, crash reduction, and construction costs are all key factors in deter- mining whether to install a left-turn lane or a bypass lane.

Research on left-turn accommodations at unsignalized intersections 9 pro- duced warrants for the installation of left-turn lanes and bypass lanes that account for those factors. Dimensions for turning roadways e. Bypass lanes for through traffic should be designed with the same lane width as the width of the travel lane upstream and downstream of the intersection; the taper rate recommended in Section 9.
