Modeling Driveway Access to Highways in 2D and 3D Quickly

This request came in a few weeks back and it has been nagging at me for a while now, and I thought I would record a video to show you how you can use the Corridor Intersection Design tools to create layouts of driveway access to major highways quickly and easily in either 2D or 3D.

The video below shows the use of the Intersection Design tool to create T or Y intersections between many driveways along a major highway using a template that models the legs of the intersection as well as all of the pavement and shoulder widths and the connections of all the elements. You can model this in 2D or 3D (for 2D you have to give everything an elevation (the same elevation eg 100) to make it work, but it is a quick and easy method.

Tools shown in the video include

Create Intersection Command
Save Intersection Template Command
Change Elevation Command
Copy Command

The video shows you how
