Title:  Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads: Chapter 9 - Intersections
Publication code:  PTM-GEODES9-E

The Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads is a fundamental reference document for roadway design practitioners in Canada. It contributes to the consistent and safe development and expansion of regional, provincial, and national roadway and highway systems in Canada.

The 2017 Guide contains the current design and human factors research and practices for roadway geometric design; it replaces the 1999 edition of the Guide and subsequent updates to it. The Guide provides guidance in developing design solutions that meet the needs of a range of users while addressing the context of local conditions and environments. Design guidelines for freeways, arterials, collectors, and local roads, in both urban and rural locations, are included as well as guidance for integrated bicycle and pedestrian design.

Chapter 9 – Intersections provides design guidance on intersections including roundabouts, innovative intersections and at-grade railroad crossings. A summary of relevant human factor aspects and an intersection planning and design process are provided. The design process identifies the relevant inputs and possible constraints. Guidelines on intersection spacing, layout and alignment and sight distance needs are summarized. Design details and guidance for simple intersections, channelization, tapers, auxiliary and turning lanes are outlined.
