An at-grade intersection is a junction at which two or more transport axes cross at the same level (or grade).

Traffic management[edit]

With areas of high or fast traffic, an at-grade intersection normally requires a traffic control device such as a stop sign, traffic light or railway signal to manage conflicting traffic.
