I'm wondering how to make an intersection between two roads with an angle of 35 degrees ?

RE: Roads design

Get a copy of Geometric Design of Roadways from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) or similar from other organizations.

RE: Roads design

As is common in questions on these forums, there is too little information to give an adequate response. There are often many variables that play into a scenario.

That being said: one should try to alter the intersection to try to achieve something closer to 90 degrees.

RE: Roads design

Use a roundabout.

RE: Roads design

I think Terry's method is more desirable. Otherwise, the driver's sighting could be impaired by the flat angle of intersection.

Yeah. Gotta love Market Street.

When I have to drive in San Francisco, which isn't too often these days, I do my best to avoid Market Street and Columbus Avenue.
