In Design: Route 301 and Route 3 Median U-Turn Intersection
The intersection at Route 3 with Route 301 will be reconfigured to a Median U-Turn (MUT), which is an innovative intersection that disallows left turns at the main intersection. The redesigned intersection will have single lane U-turn areas at dedicated median openings to complete the desired movement. The U-turn areas will be built on northbound Route 301, south of the intersection. Pedestrian crossings will also be installed.
A median U-Turn (MUT) intersection improves safety by reducing the number of points where vehicles cross paths and decreases the potential for right-angle crashes.
It will increase efficiency by eliminating left-turn movements from the main intersection, which will allow for fewer traffic signal phases, reducing delay and increasing capacity.
