The following standards shall govern access to corner lots:
(A) (1) For access to an abutting property located at the intersection of two county highways, one access point shall be permitted on the county highway having the lower volume of traffic. The Access Control Officer shall determine which highway has the lower volume of traffic. The requirements for the access point shall comply with the provisions set forth in this chapter.
(2) The Access Control Officer, on a case-by-case basis, may allow an access point on the county highway with the higher volume of traffic provided the left turns into the site are not counter to and are in the same direction as the left turn movements at the intersection with the cross street.
(B) (1) For corner lots at an intersection where only one of the abutting roads is a county highway, access shall be provided from the road having the lower volume of traffic. The Access Control Officer shall determine which road has the lower volume of traffic. If the Access Control Officer determines that the county highway has the lower volume of traffic, one access shall be permitted, and the requirements for the access point shall comply with the provisions of this chapter.
(2) If access has previously been granted by another highway authority having jurisdiction over the road having a higher volume of traffic than the county highway, then access to the county highway shall not be permitted.
(C) If access is being requested to both roads and one or both roads is a county highway, the owner may apply for a variation from this section. In addition to the provisions set forth in § 90.030 of this chapter, a traffic impact study shall be required.
