Right hand turn geometry at urban arterial intersections in Edmonton: guidelines for application of different geometric treatments for different conditions

The City of Edmonton commissioned Infrastructure Systems Limited (ISL) to review the current standard and to develop guidelines for use of several different right-hand turn geometric treatments that designers can choose from, to better fit the conditions expected at urban arterial intersections. The guidelines include several different geometric treatments to choose from, as well as criteria for their application. The guide was developed with input from a variety of technical sources as well as from professionals representing the transportation planning, roadway design, transit planning/operations and traffic operations disciplines within Edmonton's Transportation and Streets Department. The guidelines developed for Edmonton may be of interest to other communities who may wish to consider the proposition that the use of a single intersection design standard may not be the best approach.
