Indirect Left Turns

Two Regional Transportation Authority projects incorporate a new intersection turn function, called Indirect Left. Both intersections are open, one at Oracle and Ina (Pima County) and the other at Oracle and Grant (City of Tucson). The Indirect Left is effective in eastbound and westbound directions only.

The intersections are safer and help you save on gas due to reduced idling at the intersection. The intersections also provide more capacity for through traffic. According to the Federal Highway Administration, indirect left turns reduce crashes, improve congestion and add capacity with a 15 percent to 20 percent gain. Crashes decline by 20 percent on average and 35 percent if the indirect left turn is signalized.
