Benefits of RCIs

  • Improved safety—Studies show a 70 percent reduction in fatalities and a 42 percent reduction in injury crashes where RCIs are used
  • Faster to build—RCIs can be designed and built in approximately one year. Interchanges typically take 3-5 years
  • Lower cost—RCIs are often less expensive than constructing an intersection with a stop light and are a fraction the cost of building an interchange
