Project Design: Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI)


With the most common type of RCI, drivers on the main road follow their usual paths, but raised medians redirect drivers from the side road. When there is a safe opening in traffic, drivers turn right to easily enter the flow of traffic on the main route. To go the other direction, or cross the highway, they pull into a dedicated lane to make a U-turn. There may be a traffic signal at this location. Reduced conflict intersections simplify how traffic is moved through the area, making travel safer and quicker. By removing most of the crossing conflicts, an RCI typically results in less severe crashes.


Benefits of an RCI:

• Improves safety for motorists and pedestrians

• Accommodates more traffic volume without increased delays

• Allows for the City or NCDOT to adjust the timing of the traffic signals to control the speed at which drivers move through the corridor

• Requires less right-of-way or property impacts than adding travel lanes or building an interchange

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
