Wondering What the New Route 55 and Route 340/522 Intersection is Going to Look Like?
The Virginia Department of Transportation has created an animation of the Quadrant Roadway Intersection being constructed at the intersection of Route 55 and Route 340/522 in Front Royal. The video shows the traffic projected for the year 2036. The intersection works by rerouting all four left turn movements at a four-legged intersection onto a road that connects the two intersecting roads. This design prohibits all left turns at the main intersection and therefore allows a simple two phase signal to process the remaining through and right turn movements, thus creating less delay and in turn, greatly enhanced intersection performance.
