Figure 5: Raised Splitter Island Terminated in Advance of the Entrance Line

Photo of a raised splitter island that ends several yards upstream of the yield line. The space between the yield line and the beginning of the raised splitter island is painted with yellow cross-hatching, allowing larger vehicles to proceed over the crosshatched pavement if necessary to permit a vehicle the size of the design vehicle to navigate the circle without being forced to mount a curb.

Return to Figure 5.
