Project Details

VDOT proposes to construct a Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT) intersection on Route 29 (Seminole Trail) at Route 662 (Shelby Road) in Madison County. 

The RCUT intersection differs from a conventional intersection by eliminating the left turn movement from the cross street. To accommodate this movement, the RCUT intersection requires drivers on Route 662 to turn right onto Route 29 and then make a U-turn maneuver at a one-way median opening about 900 feet past the intersection. The new U-turn crossover location improves sight lines down Route 29. 

Construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2023.

Benefits 

According to a recent study, the Federal Highway Administration found that RCUTs enhance safety, reducing crashes by 28 to 49 percent when compared to a stop-controlled intersection. Crash severity is reduced by 70 percent in fatal crashes and by 42 percent in crashes resulting in injury.
