  1. Separate Left-Turn Phase Alternatives Study – Kelly Akasaki

The study looks at separate left turn phase alternatives.  The current evaluation process is limited in its scope and addresses only those locations with an existing dedicated left-turn pocket.  Many existing locations cannot accommodate a separate left-turn only lane without using an existing through lane or taking additional right-of-way.  In cases where this is impractical, a method needs to be developed to evaluate locations to determine if installing a left-turn phase is feasible, given its sometimes negative affect on through traffic.
