NEXUS Intersections

STATE-OF-THE-ART SOFTWARE FOR ROADWAY JUNCTION DESIGN AND PLANNING

NEXUS™ is the ultimate junction design solution for new construction and rehabilitation projects offering vehicle operations, geometric design, and safety performances together in one comprehensive package. With 65% savings in overall design costs, NEXUS allows for the creation and evaluation of junction concepts in a fraction of the time compared to traditional or manual computer-aided drafting and designing.

Using the patented Vehicle Envelope Method® of design, NEXUS incorporates all the key elements in the junction design process including design vehicles, capacity conditions, sight lines, conflict points, and conceptual grading – providing instant feedback so engineers can quickly and easily produce highly effective and safety oriented junction layouts.

NEXUS Overview Video
NEXUS was developed to give engineers the ability to quickly and efficiently create junction layouts with pre-generated templates and sophisticated editing tools that continually update the junction as design changes are made.

NEXUS Intersections Features

WORK WITH JUNCTION LEG TEMPLATES
Visualize different design alternatives faster by using pre-defined leg templates. With over 450 templates to choose from, engineers can easily filter (by the number of entry and exit lanes) through the entire library to work with specific templates applicable for their projects.
AUTOCAD® CIVIL 3D® INTEGRATION
NEXUS can generate Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® surfaces, vertical, and horizontal alignments. Civil 3D objects (such as corridors) are updated dynamically using the NEXUS grading model. With the new support, engineers can assess the junction or crossroad footprint based on the 3D grading design.
