Draper ThrU Turn, Draper News, Draper Homes!


 After several months of construction UDOT has completed  Utah's first ThrU Turn Intersection in Draper at 123000 South and State Street. This 'innovative concept' is said to improve traffic flow by moving left turning vehicles away from the intersection. As a Draper Home Owner and a Draper Real Estate Agent, I pass this light several times each day. I loved the previous, traditional intersection and rarely had I been stuck in major delays. In fact, from my Home in Draper to the on ramp going Northbound on I15 was less than 5 -7 minutes. Since the opening of the ThrU Turn the time it takes to depart and arrive to my Home in Draper has been increased to near bothering limits. It's not the idea or the planning, it's the user's. In order for this concept to work properly it will require the cooperation of all drivers. UDOT has clearly marked and posted the law.. NO LEFT TURN... in every direction!  It is going to take some time. After years of following the same pattern to and from my Home In Draper, I caught myself and have witnessed multitudes of drivers doing the same thing. Passing at least three no left turn signs and by habit attempting to turn left. Cars honked as they backed up behind me and I realized I had just become the idiot I had laughed at the day prior.

  According to UDOT's Website, The TTI is based on an innovative intersection design successfully implemented in other states around the country. The design replaces left turns and provides a designated lane that leads to a U-turn approximately 400 feet past the intersection. Motorists wanting to turn left travel through the intersection make a U-turn and come back through the intersection from the opposite direction and turn at the intersection or their desired destination.

The TTI improves traffic flow, maintains access and enhances safety. By reducing left turns, the number and severity of crashes are greatly reduced. Additionally, the TTI is more bike and pedestrian friendly. I'm sure once the Draper Home owner's get familiar with the new restrictions traffic will begin to flow at accelerated levels   Draper ThrU Turn
