In Snellville, Ga., an innovative solution was needed that could both improve traffic flow and balance impacts to the city and property owners. Since the heaviest left-turn movement was from US 78/SR 10 to SR 124, a two-legged displaced left turn was proposed on US78/SR 10, and a free-flow right-turn lane was proposed for SR 124 to US78/SR 10.
