Add a Turn Lane to a Corridor
Korey Gaddy, of TPM Solutions, walks through simple turn lane mechanics for a driveway that employs Feature Line Corridor targets.
From the TPM Solutions YouTube Channel
Korey presents the essentials of the Civil 3D Corridor mechanics to use Feature Line targets for a Lane widening.
Also covered very briefly is how to employ the Intersection Wizard in a single pass to add that to a driveway or roadway corridor.
There are reasons you might want to do this work with Features Line targets. However, a bettter step-by-step use of the Intersection Wizard and Offset Alignments, Offset Profiles, and Widenings will produce a more managed and flexible design results.
See the Civil 3D Intersections and Corridors page with the videos and the linked posts for more details.
