At the Intersection
Several different treatments may be used at the intersection depending on the emphasis desired as determined by a field study. Figure 6-1 illustrates various T-intersection treatments.Anchor: #i1003440
Use of Large Arrow Signs
The Large Arrow signs (W1-7T and W1-9T) may be used where a field study indicates that additional emphasis is needed to mark a T-intersection or a sharp turn or curve of the roadway. When used, the sign boards should be installed on the outside of the turn or curve and should be located as close to the right-of-way (ROW) line as practical (see Figure 6-1).
