Superstreet Intersection U.S. 35 at Factory Road and Orchard Lane

U.S. 35 Superstreet Coming to a Completion

One half of the U.S. 35 Superstreet in Greene County has been opened to traffic, with the loons and stop-and-go signals at Orchard Lane now operational.


Crews worked through the night to switch traffic and open the loons; however, issues with the signal controller at Orchard Lane delayed progress during the overnight, so they were unable to complete the switch at Factory Road prior to the morning rush hour.

With the traffic pattern changed at Orchard Lane, left-turn and cross-over movements at U.S. 35 are prohibited, and motorists traveling on Orchard Lane are now required to turn right onto U.S. 35 and either continue to the nearby loon, where they can make a legal U-turn and proceed on U.S. 35 in the opposite direction, or return to the side street.


Although the intersection with Factory Road remains in its original configuration, the new traffic pattern is anticipated to be in effect by 7 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 4. This schedule is subject to change depending upon numerous variables.

What is a Superstreet?

  • It is a non-traditional signalized intersection that can provide more capacity than a traditional traffic signal.
  • It does not allow side street traffic to turn left or go straight through the main intersection – these movements turn right and do a U-turn at a nearby signal to get to their desired path.

Superstreet Advantages

  • It would provide considerable improvement in operations until the interchanges can be funded/built.
    1. Total Cost for a Bridge over U.S. 35- $93.6 million
      • 80% State $75.88 million
      • 20% Local $18.72 million
    2. Superstreet Cost-$15 million
  • Higher Capacity - Breaks movements of a traditional 8 phase intersection into several smaller 2 phase intersections.  This allows more GREEN time to be directed to heavy movements (higher capacity compared to a traditional signal).
  • The signals can be program or operated during major local events
  • Provides much better coordination (both directions independent) which should reduce the amount of times vehicles stop going through the corridor.
  • Proposed Superstreet signal can process 836 more vehicles per hour on U.S. 35 compared to the existing signal/timing
  • Less chance of severe angle crashes
  • Safety– fewer conflict points.
    1. Current Conventional Intersection 32 conflict points
    2. Superstreet Intersection 14 conflict points
