Abstract

Past studies indicated that interchange configurations, access control, and geometric design are related to Wrong-Way Driving (WWD) and minor ramp geometric changes can be effective in reducing the number of wrong-way entries onto freeways. In this paper, access management techniques and geometric elements, which are capable of discouraging wrong-way maneuvers, are identified and discussed. Additionally, every aspect of these elements and their relationship to WWD is investigated. These geometric elements include interchange types, exit ramp terminals, frontage roads, raised medians, channelizing islands, and control radius. The aforementioned elements should be given a special consideration during the design stage of interchanges and intersections.
