It looks as if the area between the two solid yellow lines could be a turning lane, but there’s no turn arrow on the pavement. And it’s hard not to notice the arrow signs that indicate Manning is one way southbound, as well as the no-left-turn signs.
STATUS: “That is not a left turn lane,” said Danny Budimirovic, a city traffic operations manager. It was created to push drivers into the right hand lane, so they don’t go straight through the intersection and head-on into traffic in a left turn lane, waiting to go south on Manning, he said. “The one-way arrows and ‘do not enter’ signs reinforce that left turns cannot be made in this direction.” We asked: Wouldn’t it be better to paint diagonal lines on the pavement, as another measure to warn drivers away? “Our department has slowly gotten away from installing too many cross-hatching (zebra) lines, due to installation and maintenance costs, and the fact that in many cases, they were just too redundant,” he said. Okay, but this location looks like it should be the exception to the rule.
