Jughandle-Weaver Rd./US 42 Intersection

WHAT

is the scope of the project?

A “jughandle” or “half loop” design has been built at the intersection of US 42 and Weaver Rd. This innovative traffic pattern shifts traffic by using a new road to support safer turning movements, or in some instances, diverting traffic to the new road and away from the primary intersection altogether.  In addition, upgraded signals are timed to keep traffic moving more efficiently, especially during peak hours.

 

Specifically, a new road (Quadrant Rd.) has been built at the southwest corner of US 42 and Weaver Rd. Through traffic and right turns will continue to be permitted at the intersection, but traffic turning left is directed to the new Quadrant Rd., where it ‘loops back around’ to the current intersection and continues through or turns right.

WHY

are these improvements

taking place?

The intersection of US 42 and Weaver Rd. is one of Northern Kentucky’s busiest intersections. New traffic signals have been installed and adjusted to allow for more green time, which reduces wait time and allows traffic to move through the intersection more smoothly.
 
In addition, by eliminating left turns, this design also dramatically improves safety by reducing potential conflict points for turning traffic.

WHEN

will work begin and end?

This project was completed in Sept. 2019.
