Hypothetical Design Only
Here are the drawings I promised earlier. These are more detailed drawings with lanes and traffic patterns shown. Please feel free to ask questions / or make suggestions.
22nd Street Access, not much has changed however the SB Circle to EB 22nd Has changed, also there is now a dedicated exit lane for cars and trucks making a right to SB Circle from EB 22nd, also right turns are now controlled by a traffic light timed so that there is no impeding traffic. The lane that feeds the NB Circle Drive loop is now separate from the Circle Drive Southbound turn lane. Vehicles going from WB 22nd to NB Circle Drive can no longer cut across to get to Laurier. Same with people attemping to do the same from Clancy across to 22nd ramp. Pedestrian crossing have been turned into overpasses to maintain cycling and pedestrian access.
Neighborhood access, Orange for North of 22nd / Purple for South of 22nd. Also fairlight drive now gives direct access to SB Circle without having to go to 22nd, lessening traffic on 22nd. Traffic can continue NB on the access ramp while vehicles on Laurier and Clancy make left turns to join flow of traffic. Similar to how Circle Drive operates now. Three lanes each way between Laurier and 33rd to facilitate proper merging.
The overpasses that allow neighborhood access.
