Thanks to Mark Luszcz of DelDOT Traffic, the official schematic drawings for the final right turn-only lane (RTOL) treatment designs are complete. Next step is to submit them to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to ensure they are compliant with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). From there, Mark (lead engineer on the project) will ask the University of Delaware to begin developing a research proposal.Three drawings that include bicycle pavement markings are shown below:
That is all we have at this time, and will report further progress as it unfolds. You can review all previous blog posts on this project HERE, including SB-120, a bill to amend the traffic code reflecting legal usage of RTOLs as shoulders.
