Hello all, I've seen the web cast regarding creating intersections and some of the ideas are really intriguing. Has anyone developed a methodology for modeling residential development roadway intersections with crosspans? Brian

Hey Brian; Is the word "Crosspans" synonymous with "Cross Gutter" or "Spandrel"? -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Hi Don, "Cross Gutter" sounds right to me.

Hey Brian; Since the Cross Gutter would be a function of the direction of flow then the street that it is parallel with would be the "control". While I know I'm in the C3D NG, in Land my methodology is to generate breaklines from the Cross Sections using Road Output Extension, and then break the TFC breaklines (I guess I have to start calling them faultlines to avoid the Department of Redundancy Department) at the Point of Curb Return. And then finish off the rest of the Intersection design using 3D polyline generators in Terrain pulldown. Back in my younger days, with VANGO I would model the intersection by using the curb line as an alignment and generating a profile which I used along with cross sections and templates to get the final intersection design. I haven't had a chance to emulate this process in C3D yet, but I'm itching for the chance to try it out. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Seems like you can use a basic lane transition at the intersecting intersection. Then profile both curb lines allong with the centerline. I'm getting ready to do this, but I havent figured out what I'm looking at using a superimposed profile yet.
