They shall be not less than 6 in. or greater than 24 in. in width.â Paragraph 14 of Section 3B.19 contains the following stan- dard: âWhere through traffic lanes approaching an intersection become mandatory turn lanes, lane-use arrow markings (see Fig- ure 3B-21) shall be used and shall be accompanied by standard signs.â Among the areas of interest of this synthesis, the only Stan- dards found within Part 3 of the 2003 MUTCD are the following: Item E in Paragraph 1 of Section 3A.05 contains the follow- ing standard: âA dotted line shall consist of noticeably shorter line segments separated by shorter gaps than used for a broken line. The width of a dotted line shall be at least the same as the width of the line it extends.â Paragraph 3 of Section 3B.03 contains the following stan- dard: âIf a two-way left-turn lane that is never operated as a reversible lane is used, the lane line pavement markings on each side of the two-way left-turn lane shall consist of a nor- mal broken yellow line and a normal solid yellow line to delin- eate the edges of a lane that can be used by traffic in either direction as part of a left-turn maneuver. These markings shall be placed with the broken line toward the two-way left-turn lane and the solid line toward the adjacent traffic lane as shown in Figure 3B-7.â Paragraph 6 of Section 3B.03 contains the following stan- dard: âIf a continuous median island formed by pavement mark- ings separating travel in opposite directions is used, two sets of double solid yellow lines shall be used to form the island as shown in Figures 3B-2 and 3B-4. Other markings in the median island area shall also be yellow, except crosswalk markings which shall be white (see Section 3B.17).â Paragraphs 3 and 4 of Section 3B.04 contain the following standards: âWhere crossing the lane line markings with care is permitted, the lane line markings shall consist of a normal [4 to 6 in. wide] broken white line. Where crossing the lane line mark- ings is discouraged, the lane line markings shall consist of a nor- mal [4 to 6 in. wide] solid white line.â Paragraph 1 of Section APPENDIX B Standards from Chapter 3B of the 2003 MUTCD That Are Referenced in this Synthesis
