With a Boulevard Left, left turns from one or both roads are not allowed at the main intersection and are instead completed via U-turn movements at dedicated median openings. This application reduces delay by removing left-turn phases from the main intersection and improves safety by reducing conflict points. The design improves capacity at a signalized intersection by 20 to 50 percent by removing the left-turns.
- Improves safety by reducing conflict points.
- Reduces delay and improves traffic operations at high volume intersections.
- Reduces cost and physical footprint compared to a grade-separated interchange.
- Enhances pedestrian safety and accessibility.
