Notes for Figure 6H­103(CA)—Typical Application 103(CA) Detour for Bike Laneon Roads with Closure of One Travel Direction 

 

Guidance:

  1. When existing accommodations for bicycle travel are disrupted or closed, information and devices contained in Figures 6H­101(CA) through 6H­104(CA), as appropriate per situation encountered, should be used to consider the needs and control of bicyclists through a TTC zone.
  2. This plan should be used for streets without posted route numbers.
  3. On multi­lane streets, Detour signs with an Advance Turn Arrow should be used in advance of a turn.

Option:

  1. The STREET CLOSED legend may be used in place of ROAD CLOSED.
  2. Additional DO NOT ENTER signs may be used at intersections with intervening streets.
  3. Warning lights may be used on Type III Barricades.
  4. Detour signs may be located on the far side of intersections.
  5. A Street Name sign may be mounted with the Detour sign. The Street Name sign may be either white on green or black on orange.

Standard:

  1. When used, the Street Name sign shall be placed above the Detour sign.

Guidance:

  1. The DETOUR (M4­8) sign should be placed on tangent sections at intervals not to exceed 1300 feet and at major intersections.

Option:

  1. In urban areas, the M4­-8 signs may be placed at every intersection.

Guidance:

  1. When the detour is applicable to bicyclists and not pedestrians, the Bicycle Detour (M4­9c) sign should be used instead of the Pedestrian/Bicycle Detour (M4­9a) sign.
  2. All advance warning signs should be placed so that the path of travel for bicycles is not blocked, while maintaining visibility for road users.

Option:

  1. For long­term duration projects (see Section 6G.02), the shared roadway bicycle marking may be used along detours with on­street parking and inadequate lane width.
