SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – San Marcos and Austin have them. Now San Antonio has a Displaced Left Turn intersection. It’s in the far Northwest side on Bandera Road at Loop 1604.
TxDOT says a DLT allows vehicles to travel more quickly through an intersection by temporarily shifting traffic to the left side of the road, allowing through-traffic and left-turning traffic to proceed through the intersection simultaneously.
TxDOT warns drivers to pay close attention to the signs, signals and markings that will help you navigate through the DLT intersection.
