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.

Type B - U-Turn: Used in the absence of a cross street or at a T-Intersection.

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.
