Not all roadway intersections are alike. Having said this, most intersecting roads intersect at a 90 degree angle. As a result, using a tool like InfraWorks 360, modeling 90 degree intersections is pretty easy. The challenge comes when we need to model roads that intersect at much smaller angles. (45 degrees or less) This situation commonly happens with ramps where we have one or more lanes of traffic merging into another road. In these situations, creating automatic intersections with InfraWorks 360 wasn’t quite as easy.
InfraWorks 360 2017 (released April 2016) includes new enhancements to quickly create ramp style intersections as effortlessly as a 90 degree intersection. It even provides tools to automate the process of creating an acceleration lane and custom taper if you need one.
