I have street addresses that I am geocoding using the MapQuest Open Geocoding API. What I'd like to do, is to find the closest intersection to this address. I've looked at using Nominatim for this, but don't see anything hopeful. Does anyone have any other suggestions about another method?

it may be relevant what your usecase is. How many of such queries do you need to make? One time or repeatedly? Please just add to your question ("edit").
