This paper deals with intersections' modeling for vehicular traffic flow governed by the Lighthill $\&$ Whitham [24] and Richards [26] model. We present a straightforward reformulation of recent intersections' models, introduced in [19] and [4], using a description in terms of supply and demand functions [22, 6]. This formulation is used to state the new model which takes into account a possible storage capacity of an intersection as seen in roundabouts or highway on-ramps. We discuss the Riemann problem at the junction and present numerical simulations.
