Figure 3B-1. Examples of Two-Lane, Two-Way Marking Applications

This figure illustrates two examples of two-lane, two-way pavement marking applications on roadways.

Two vertical roadways are shown, (a) and (b):

  • Example (a) shows "typical two-lane, two-way marking with passing permitted in both directions." A two-lane roadway is shown with a centerline marking of a broken yellow line. Arrows show that the direction of travel is one lane in each direction.
  • Example (b) shows "typical two-lane, two-way marking with no-passing zones." A two-lane roadway is shown with centerline markings of (from the top to the bottom of the figure): a single broken yellow line; a solid yellow line adjacent to the left lane and a broken yellow line adjacent to the right lane; a double solid yellow line; a broken yellow line adjacent to the left lane and a solid yellow line adjacent to the right lane; and a single broken yellow line. In the middle of the figure, each section of solid yellow line, which overlaps in the section having a double solid yellow line, is marked as a "no-passing zone." A solid white line is marked on the outside edge of each lane. Arrows show that the direction of travel is one lane in each direction.

A legend shows a black arrow indicating the direction of travel in the lanes.

A note indicates "See Section 3B.07 for edge line warrants."
