This paper presents the framework and major functions of an integrated program for unconventional arterial intersection design. The proposed program features its integration of a build-in knowledge base and the interactive analysis tools, which aims to provide a better understanding and convenient evaluation of all unconventional intersection types. Various factors, related to traffic analysis, safety concerns, cost estimation, and pedestrian impacts can be included in the evaluation framework through user-friendly interfaces. A case study is presented to show the applicability of the proposed system with respect to the selection and design of unconventional intersections under userspecified scenarios.
