Continuous Flow Intersection

The Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI) is a new design originally developed in Mexico. It has been implemented in several locations across the U.S. to improve safety and efficiency. The CFI reduces the number of traffic signal phases and conflict points for motorists.

What Are the Benefits?

In one study on a CFI in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, researchers found a 24% reduction in total crashes and a 19% reduction in fatal and injury crashes over a span of two years.

A CFI allows for increased intersection capacity and can improve safety by reducing crashes at high-crash sites.
