Figure 6H-13. Temporary Road Closure (TA-13)
This figure illustrates a temporary road closure. A legend under the figure states that this is Typical Application 13. A note states "Note: See Tables 6H-2 and 6H-3 for the meaning of the symbols and/or letter codes used in this figure."
This figure shows a vertical two-lane roadway with one lane of traffic in each direction. A downward-pointing black arrow in the left lane and an upward-pointing arrow in the right lane denote the direction of traffic. The opposing lanes are shown separated by a broken yellow line. A shoulder is shown to the right of each travel lane. The shoulders are shown separated from the travel lanes by a solid white line.
At the bottom of the figure and to the right of the shoulder of the northbound lane, a black inverted "T" is shown denoting a sign. The sign is shown as a diamond-shaped orange sign with a black border and the words "ROAD WORK AHEAD" in black. This sign is shown at a dimensioned distance C in advance of a second diamond-shaped orange sign with a black border to the right of the shoulder. This sign is labeled optional and is shown with the words "BE PREPARED TO STOP" in black. This sign is shown at a dimensioned distance B in advance of a third diamond-shaped orange sign with a black border to the right of the shoulder. This sign shows a black symbol for a flagger. It is shown at a dimensioned distance A in advance of a horizontal red symbol for a flagger on the shoulder of the northbound lane. Beyond the flagger, a buffer space labeled optional is shown in advance of a vertical rectangular black and white diagonally striped box, denoting a work space, extending across both directions of travel.
At the top of the figure and to the right of the shoulder of the southbound lane, the same series of three warning signs, flagger symbol, and optional buffer space are shown in advance of the work space.
