The Florida Section of ITE is pleased to announce the 2015 Winter Workshop on Innovative Intersection/Interchange Design Applications. As part of the safety focus area of the Every Day Counts initiative, FHWA is promoting several proven techniques to improve the safety of intersections. Among the Intersection and Interchange geometrics to be highlighted are: roundabouts, restricted crossing U‐turn intersections, median U‐turn intersections, and the diverging diamond interchange. Transportation agencies that are applying these innovative intersections and interchanges are not only reducing crashes, but are greatly enhancing efficiency for moving traffic, often with substantial cost savings and accelerated project delivery.
