Please help, I have a site access road that extends from highway into site and then loops around and intersects with itself. Would like to keep this as one alignment in order to make Super Elev and master alignment easy to control across project team.
Issue is, we would like to use Intersection wizard at the intersection but cannot, as we ony have one alignment. We could model the intersection the old way, using kerb returns with design profiles, but as the design is still in early stages the intersection is likely to be frequently revised.
Any suggestions as to how we could utilise intersection wizard in this scenario or any other useful suggestions?
I don't think you can get around the second alignment. Perhaps You can creteate another from existing with equal stations just for the wizards sake?
The intersection wizard is not going to work with just one alignment and an alignment, or any object, can only be brought into a drawing via data shortcuts once, at least from the same source and creating a duplicate would just compound each change.
If you want to keep the alignment as one, then you need manually create the intersection curb returns. If you create them as offset alignments and put in a transition you can effectively model the information that is created by the wizard, but will need to be more manually modified with each change during the design process.
How about an offset alignment? Can one be used in the wizard? Or does it have to be a normal aligment?
And can it have an offset of zero feet?
If it will work with an offset aligment and the offset can be zero, that would ensure that the second one is automatically updated if/when the first one changes.
