Circular Town Center in Summerlin
Details    Edit
Updated: Jul 21, 2011
 Arterial Intersections  Town Center Intersections  TCIs - Full TCI, Crossing Couplets  Existing
Abstract: As designed, the large outer circle is a two-way road, which could result in significant congestion. However if the outer circle were converted to just counter-clockwise, this would be a true TCI, and likely be extremely efficient. No plans for this, but it is a "Sustainable Design" because it can easily be converted to one-way operation.
