Reduced Conflict Intersections

See how Reduced Conflict Intersections Work in other states.

Benefits

  • Improved safety - Studies show a 70 percent reduction in fatalities and a 42 percent reduction in injury crashes where RCIs are used.
  • Faster to build - RCIs can be designed and built in approximately one year. Interchanges typically take 3-5 years.
  • Lower cost - RCIs are often less expensive than constructing an intersection with a stop light and are a fraction the cost of building an interchange.
