Restricted Crossing U-Turn Intersection
Traffic from a smaller side road is prohibited from proceeding through a main intersection or making a left turn, and must turn right. After making the right turn, motorists should proceed in the left lane to a median U-turn to go in the desired direction.
Continuous Green T-Intersection
Similar to a standard T-intersection, but the through movement in one direction can flow continuously.
Ramp is provided at or between intersections for motorists to make indirect left turns and/or U-turns.
