    Name of Traffic Restriction

    Hello people,

    What is it called when one lane of a two-lane road is closed (because of an accident or construction or whatever) and people must take turns to drive through the restricted part of the road?
    Ex. on a north-south road, northbound cars drive first while southbound cars wait for their turn to move.

    Thanks in advance.

    A common way to express this would be: " the road has been (temporarily) reduced to a single lane".

    Hi JMurray, thanks for your response.

    Is there any common phrase to refer to the temporary traffic system where people drive in turn?

    Would "alternate traffic" or "alternate passing" work?
