Figure 3B-2. Examples of Four-or-More Lane, Two-Way Marking Applications
This figure illustrates two examples of pavement marking applications
on two-way roadways with four or more lanes.
Two vertical roadways are shown, (a) and (b):
- Example (a) shows "typical multilane, two-way marking."
A four-lane roadway is shown. Arrows show that the direction of
travel is two lanes in each direction. The roadway has a centerline
marking of a solid double yellow line. A broken white line separates
lanes traveling in the same direction.
- Example (b) shows "typical multilane, two-way marking with
single lane left turn channelization." A five-lane roadway
is shown with the fifth, center lane used for left turns. Arrows
show that the direction of travel is two through lanes in each
direction and left turns from the center lane. The roadway has
markings of a solid double yellow line and alternating left turn
channels marked with a solid white line to separate the turn lane
from through traffic lanes traveling in the same direction. The
turn lanes have optional white left-turn arrows marked on the
pavement. A broken white line separates through lanes traveling
in the same direction.
A legend shows a black arrow indicating the direction of travel
in the lanes and an asterisk denoting "optional."
A note indicates "See Section
3B.07 for edge line warrants."
