Reduced Conflict Intersections
As part of the 2014 project, crews will be constructing a Reduced Conflict Intersection. RCIs are intersections that decrease fatalities and injuries caused by broadside crashes on four-lane divided highways. In some parts of the country, RCIs are sometimes referred to as J-turns or RCUTs. Learn more about how they improve safety and how to drive them in the video below.
