Based on the functions and characteristics of the interchange collector-distributor lanes, with Harbin as an example, it is proposed in this paper  that the local characteristics and traffic flow characteristics should be considered in the design of the interchange collector-distributor lanes, which includes the analysis of function, location, and many other aspects, in hopes to provide reference for the design of collector-distributor lanes in other regions of our country.
