    New ideas are explored for managing multimodal traffic on isolated approaches to signalized intersections. Strategies are proposed that both: segregate distinct modes along the approach, and more effectively resolve the disruptive capacity-reducing conflicts that arise between through moving and turning traffic traveling in adjacent lanes. The proposed schemes produce capacities that consistently and significantly exceed those of conventional intersection treatments, and reduce travel delays for all modes. Observations at a real intersection support these claims.
