Notes for Figure 6H-27—Typical Application 27 Closure at the Side of an Intersection
- The situation depicted can be simplified by closing one or more of the intersection approaches. If this cannot be done, and/or when capacity is a problem, through vehicular traffic should be directed to other roads or streets.
- Depending on road user conditions, flagger(s) or uniformed law enforcement officer(s) should be used to direct road users within the intersection.
- At night, flagger stations shall be illuminated, except in emergencies.
- Flashing warning lights and/or flags may be used to call attention to the advance warning signs.
- For short-duration work operations, the channelizing devices may be eliminated if a vehicle displaying high-intensity rotating, flashing, oscillating, or strobe lights is positioned in the work space.
- A BE PREPARED TO STOP sign may be added to the sign series.
- When used, the BE PREPARED TO STOP sign should be located before after the Flagger symbol sign.
- ONE LANE ROAD AHEAD signs should also be used to provide adequate advance warning.
- Turns can be prohibited as required by vehicular traffic conditions. Unless the streets are wide, it might be
- physically impossible to make certain turns, especially for large vehicles. Option:
- Vehicle hazard warning signals may be used to supplement high-intensity rotating, flashing, oscillating, or strobe lights.
- Vehicle hazard warning signals shall not be used instead of the vehicle’s high-intensity rotating, flashing, oscillating, or strobe lights.
