(a) Right Angle. Streets shall intersect each other at as nearly right angles as topography and other limiting factors of good design permit.

(c) Number of Streets Converging at one intersection shall be reduced to a minimum, preferably not more than two.

(d) Number of Intersections along arterial streets and highways shall be held to a minimum. Wherever practicable, the distance between such intersections shall not be less than 1,200 feet.

(e) Corner Curves. Property lines at street intersections shall be rounded to an arc with a minimum radius of 15 feet or of a greater radius when required by the town or County engineer, or shall be cut off by a straight-line through the points of tangency of an arc having a radius of 15 feet or greater.

(f) Grades. Intersections shall be approached on all sides by grades not to exceed 3 percent for a distance of no less than 100 feet from property/right-of-way lines of said intersection, unless exceptional topography would prohibit these grades.

(g) Minor and Collector Streets shall not necessarily continue across arterial streets; but, if the distance between the centerline intersection of such streets is less than 300 feet measured along the centerline of the arterial street, then the location of the collector and/or minor street shall be so adjusted that the distance is increased or the alignment/adjoinment across the intersecting street is continuous and a jog is avoided. Such jogs for minor and collector streets intersecting other minor or collector streets shall not be less than 125 feet, otherwise the distance shall be increased or said streets shall be adjusted to be continuous in alignment.
