This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information presented should be considered a draft, not yet ready for use. If you would like to contribute to this content, please consider posting in the US Wiki Discussion forum first to discuss your ideas.

A Jughandle is used at a signed/signaled intersection, which disallows either a direct left turn or U-Turn and instead uses a right handed exit to allow access off the main roadway prior to or after the intersection and a subsequent indirect turn from the connector or cross street.

What is a jughandle

There are 3 kinds of Jughandles per the NJ-DOT. They are:

  • Type A - Forward: Exit prior to the intersection accommodating traffic turning both right and left.
Need image
  • Type B - U-Turn: Used in the absence of a cross street or at a T-Intersection.
Need image
  • Type C - Reverse: Exit downstream of the intersection and create a loop to meet the cross street/traffic signal.

What is not a junghandle

Exit ramps which use local streets to enable this maneuver are NOT considered jughandles.

Segment Type & Name

Any Jughandle which is unsigned with BGS (green signs) or signed with BGS which only display the primary/alternate name of the connecting road, should be treated as a standard At Grade Connector.

Type: Lowest connecting routable segment. Name: None.
Need image

NOTE: If the segment connects and routes to 3 or more segments, the type changes to the same as the second highest type which can be routed to or from the jughandle. See Roundabouts for a detailed explanation.

Any Jughandle signed using BGS which has more than one name displayed (ie. multiple streets, community, POI) or not the direct connecting segment name, fall under the exceptions for At Grade Connectors.

Type: Ramp. Name: Match signage.
Need image

NOTE: In this scenario the ramp type will hide the segment name in the client, so adding any other relevant signage - white, blue, brown (- ie. All turns, U-turn, XXX State Park) is acceptable only after the wording from ALL important BGS is added. Only add wording from signs which will help orient drivers.

Geometry

The junction angle should be set from 15-30°. This will give the expected instruction for a jughandle of "Keep/Exit right".
