Unequal Intersection

I am designing a reconstruction of an extremely old residential street.  Lots of little nuaces that don't fit neatly in normal new construction, and that I sense that the program does not really anticipate.  Here's one scenario I cannot find a solution for...


I have a unequal widths at an intersection for different streets...

  • East street 24' width
  • West street 24' width
  • South street 24' width
  • North street 26' width

I have another intersection of 24'/24'/24'/27' that I have yet to get to.


I tried doing a transition lane of 0' (length), but it would not let me do a zero value.  As of this writing, I have the three 24' widths linked up with the intersection, but not the wider street.

I'm pretty sure you can use your own alignments for width and returns. select them in the wizard

Thank you

It was kind of quirky, but that was the issue.  The link here is an updated thread with more detailed info on how and what I did.  (For those who may find this helpful in a future search)
