Further Consideration of
the Northbound Right Turn
Step 1. Setup
The analyses conducted
at Krome Avenue and Okeechobee Road to this point have treated the
northbound right turn as a stop-controlled movement. As shown in the
previous problem, this results in an estimated capacity that anticipates a
failing condition. Closer
inspection of the assumption reveals that this may be too conservative and
that it should be considered as a merge. As shown in the aerial photograph of
Exhibit 3-24 and in Exhibit 3-32, below, the right-turn channelization is designed more as a merge
than a conventional intersection.
