    There are also 5-ramp versions of parclos, where only one cloverleaf loop is used. 7-ramp versions also exist. The loop of the 5-ramp version can be either an entrance (loop-on, left) or an exit (loop-off, right). The half of the interchange across the freeway from the loop is just like a diamond interchange . The Green Book discussion also states that â at least part of the deceleration distance for an auxiliary lane assumes that an approaching turning vehicle can decelerate comfort- ably up to 10 mph before clearing a through laneâ and that â a mph differential is commonly considered acceptable on arterial roadways.â The Green Book (4.

VEHICLE BEHAVIOR ON DECELERATION LANES. The results are presented of an in-depth study of traffic behavior at three rural deceleration lanes: a 4-lane freeway interchange, a 4-lane expressway intersection, and a 2-lane highway intersection.

Field study includ es three aspects, first is the vehicle operating speed distribution of interchange mainline and ramp; second is the traffic operating characteristics of merging and diverging. AASHTO recommends a deceleration rate of ft/sec2 which is a comfortable deceleration rate for most drivers.

Many studies have shown that the deceleration rate is greater than ft/sec2 under emergency situations. Dynamic Characteristics Figure Forces Acting on a Moving Vehicle (page 61) Air Resistance: () 2 D a CAu R g ρ =File Size: KB. VEHICLE FLOW CHARACTERISTICS ON ACCELERATION LANES.

The merging process from an acceleration lane to the through lane of the freeway constitutes an important aspect of traffic operation at interchanges.

This maneuver involves a lane change, usually some acceleration, and the acceptance of a lag or a gap within the major stream of by: This research study on the use of acceleration-deceleration lanes The length of the acceleration lane at this interchange was Indiana Toll Road.

Chapter Thirty-seven INTERCHANGES AASHTO defines an interchange as a system of interconnecting roadways in conjunction with one or more grade separations that provide for the movement of traffic between two or more roadways on different levels.

An interchange is a grade separation in which vehicles moving in one direction of flow may transfer by the use of connecting roadways. These connecting roadways at interchanges are called ramps. Many types and forms of interchanges and ramp layouts are used.

Some of these are shown. Figure 5 - Size: KB. CHAPTER 9 INTERSECTIONS INTRODUCTION Intersections are intended to operate with vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles proceeding in many directions, often at the same time. At such locations, traffic movements on two or more facilities are required to occupy a common area.

Since the operating characteristics vary dramatically for different types of vehicles, the designer must first establish the design vehicle on which to base the design.

For example, vehicle acceleration and deceleration characteristics have a direct impact on the design of acceleration and deceleration lanes(the length needed to provide a safe and orderly flow of traffic) and the highway alignment needed to provide adequate passing and stopping sight distances.

Frontage road turnarounds allow drivers to exit a multi-lane roadway and use the opposing frontage road to enter the multi-lane roadway in the opposite direction.
