The U-turn is near Makro department store, Mae Rim branch.

Recently, Chiang Mai Highway District 2, Bureau of Highway 1 (Chiang Mai) tried closing the U-turn by using around 20 water tanks to block the way. This is believed to help reduce and prevent accidents because it eliminates the possibility for motorists to maneuvre in a way that was causing the accidents.
