The reason for studying this intersection (Zafaraniya intersection) is because of its industrial and practical importance at the same time. Where the volume of public traffic in working hours and on different days of the week (Saturday, Monday, Thursday and Friday) the reason for choosing these days because it is located in the first, the middle and the last of the week besides it's also including the weekly holiday. After knowing the size of the traffic compares with the size of traffic design as well as to know the peak hour at the intersection, where it was found that at this hour of this intersection occurs traffic congestion cannot be this intersection to bear. Therefore, the design of the intersection must be considered to be appropriate to the current traffic size. In this paper searched with several proposals for intersections were investigated, some of which were suitable, some of which were difficult to implement or unsuitable for the topography of the region. The narrow roads leading to the intersection and the high speed of these roads are factors affecting the difficulty of change.
