Road Smart


A J-turn or Restricted Crossing U-turn is an alternative to typical intersections along busy multi-lane highways that improves safety and efficiency for drivers.

J-turns can dramatically reduce crashes relating to crossing and turning left at multi-lane highway intersections found in Mississippi.

Using this type of turn substantially improves safety for the traveling public. The number of conflict points between vehicles when crossing or turning left at a normal multi-lane, divided highway intersection are reduced, and those that remain are less severe.
