Figure 3B-23. Examples of Arrow Markings at Exit Ramp Terminals
This figure illustrates examples of arrow markings at exit ramp terminals.
The figure shows a horizontal two-lane roadway. Arrows show that the direction of travel is one lane of traffic in each direction. A vertical exit ramp is shown intersecting the roadway from the north, and an entrance ramp is shown on the south side of the intersection. Arrows show that the direction of travel is north to south on both ramps. A solid double yellow line is shown separating the opposing direction lanes on the horizontal roadway. A solid white line is shown on the outside (right) edge of the exit and entrance ramps, and a solid yellow line is shown along the inside (left) edge of the exit and entrance ramps. A solid white line is shown along the outside edges of the roadway in the eastbound and westbound directions.
On the exit ramp, red wrong-way signs are shown on both sides of the road, facing south. A white wrong-way arrow with an asterisk next to it pointing south is shown on the pavement between them. As the exit ramp approaches the intersection, it is shown spliting into two lanes, one for right turns, and one for through and left turns, separated by a triangular-shaped channelizing island. At the intersection of the exit ramp right-turn lane and the east-west roadway, another white wrong-way arrow with an asterisk next to it is shown marked on the right-turn lane, and just beyond that arrow on the right side of the ramp adjacent to the right-turn lane a Yield sign is shown mounted back-to-back with a Do Not Enter sign. In the exit ramp's through and left-turn lane, a combined left-turn and through arrow with an asterisk next to it is shown marked on the pavement at the intersection in advance of a white stop line at the intersection. On the triangular-shaped island, a Stop sign is shown facing north, mounted in front of back-to-back One-Way signs that face east and west mounted in front of a Do Not Enter sign angled to face southeast. On the left side of the exit ramp at the intersection is a Do Not Enter sign facing southwest, mounted in front of back-of-back One-Way signs that face east and west.
On the left side of the intersection on the horizontal highway, a No Right Turn symbol sign with an asterisk next to it is shown mounted to the right of the roadway in advance of a white combined right-turn and through arrow with an asterisk next to it marked on the pavement. On the right side of the intersection on the horizontal roadway, a No Right Turn symbol sign is mounted to the right of the roadway in advance of a white combined left-turn and through arrow with an asterisk next to it marked on the pavement.
A legend shows a black arrow indicating the direction of travel in the lanes, an outline arrow to show wrong-way arrows, a white arrow to show lane-use arrows, and an asterisk to show optional use. Notes state: "Modify as appropriate for multilane crossroads. See Chapter 2B for regulatory signing."
