DESIGNING SAFE AND EFFICIENT HIGH VOLUME DRIVEWAYS AND INTERSECTIONS

The designs described in this paper are based on two princ- iples: (1) that only two-phase signal equipment of the actuated type is needed and (2) that all roadways providing access to the large traffic generator will be initially or eventually converted to at least four-lane divided construction in the vicinity of the complex. The designs are for: pedestrian crossings across four-or six-lane divided roadway under signal control, access to or exit from a large traffic generator (shopping center, industrial plant, school hospital, etc.), "TEE" type driveways, double "TEE" type driveways, separate entrance-exit driveways, double left turn with U turn, and high volume intersections. /TRRL/
