ACHIEVING MULTIMODAL NETWORKS

APPLYING DESIGN FLEXIBILITY & REDUCING CONFLICTS 

 FHWA-HEP-16-055 Aug 2016

This resource provides practical real-world planning and design information to help communities achieve connected pedestrian and bicycle networks. These networks help people of all ages and abilities get where they need to go, including to and from jobs, school, grocery stores, health care, recreation, and transit. Complete multimodal networks enhance access to opportunity for everyone and help reconnect communities.

This paper provides an expansion and explanation of the presentation of the "Design of Right-Turn Lanes" presented in Session 619 of the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board. The paper addresses the operational issues and the design of right-turn lanes. As indicated in the paper, many issues relating to right-turn lanes are the same as for left-turn lanes. Deceleration rates reported in NCHRP Report 780 for left-turns are reasonably consistent with those previously assumed. The rationale for taper length as opposed to taper ratio is discussed.
