Access Control Measures

Employ access control measures to provide reasonable access to developments, while preserving the safe flow of traffic on an arterial or major collector, often in a strip mall environment. Techniques like managing where and how approaches or signals are allowed, use of medians and creation of turn lanes improve the driving atmosphere while also making movement easier and safer for pedestrians and bicyclists
