This course teaches tools and techniques that can be used to lay out a complex intersection. It will focus on the Horizontal and Vertical Geometry tools to create 2D and 3D geometric elements. In this course, you will be designing a complex intersection that includes turn lanes, median islands and turn lane islands. 2D horizontal geometry will be created using the Horizontal Geometry tools and Profiles and 3D elements will be created using the Vertical Geometry tools. The objective is to create a terrain model of the proposed pavement surface and analyze the proposed drainage contours.
