NEXUS Intersections 2.0

Advanced CAD Software for Roadway Intersection Designing and Planning

NEXUS® is the ultimate intersection 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 intersection concepts in a fraction of the time compared to traditional or manual computer-aided drafting and designing.

The future of intersection design is here

Using the patent pending Vehicle Envelope Method® of design, NEXUS incorporates all the key elements in the intersection 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 intersection layouts.

What's New: The Quickest and Most Intuitive Approach to Designing Intersections
NEXUS 2.0 video

NEXUS was developed to give engineers the ability to quickly and efficiently create intersection layouts with pre-generated templates and sophisticated editing tools that continually update the intersection as design changes are made. The interdependent geometric elements of an intersection are updated as soon as the design is modified. Changes such as adding a left turn lane or increasing the storage length of an auxiliary lane will update all of the intersection geometry allowing designers to explore different concepts or immediately react to changes.

Key design features in the latest NEXUS release include:

  • Over 450 new roadway intersection leg templates for quickly testing different design scenarios
  • Create and save completed intersection layouts and use them as templates to help accelerate the design process
  • Grading Model support for dynamic integration (generation and updating) of Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® horizontal alignments, vertical profiles, corridors, and top surfaces
  • AASHTO 2004/2011 tables for curve radius with taper and three-centered curves are now included in the corner geometry tool
  • Enhanced median island editing for tapering of approach ends
  • Automatic island creation based on user-defined design guidelines

NEXUS Benefits and Advantages

Transoft Solutions developed NEXUS to give engineers a software tool that greatly assists in the creation of intersection geometrics. Intersection geometrics and channelization details are based on operational needs and vehicle swept paths.

With NEXUS, a user can now work with all the components needed for a successful intersection layout using a complete CAD solution.

Intuitive solution for reliable results
As each design component is interdependent on each other, NEXUS allows the engineer to evaluate and monitor the performance of the entire intersection design as changes are made. The key benefit to the user is the speed of generating the geometry and surface drainage in a single and efficient tool.

In addition, the extensive editing functions make design refinements quick and easy. What used to take hours or days can be done in a fraction of the time with NEXUS.
