Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI)

How do you drive a Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI)?

There are a couple things to remember when navigating an RCI design:

  • Minor side streets are restricted to right turns
  • Minor side street left turn and through movements are made after turning right, then utilizing a U-turn
  • The U-turns can be designed as signalized, stop controlled or just yielding.
