BICYCLE FACILITY DESIGN REVIEW/INTERSECTION
| Next section
An intersection is where two or more roads meet or where a road and sidepath or trail meet. Intersections can include several travel lanes, divided or undivided, with varying traffic speeds and volumes. Intersections may be controlled through signs or traffic lights or may be uncontrolled. Four-way intersections are the most usual type although several other common geometries such as three-way (or T-intersections) exist. Roads may also cross over each other above grade but only intersections with roads at the same level (at-grade crossings) are considered here.
