Opposing Traffic Lane Dividers Show the Way During Georgia FloodsAbstract:
In July 1994, heavy flooding forced the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) to close some roads and modify traffic patterns, converting roads from one-way to two-way use. Changes in traffic patterns can be very dangerous for motorists, who can be confused by the new and unfamiliar situation. But Georgia DOT had just the tool for the job-the opposing traffic lane divider, a device developed by the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP). The opposing traffic lane divider is used to denote the new centerline on roads that have been changed from one-way to two-way traffic as a result of maintenance work or other situations. Arrows on the divider show drivers at a glance the new traffic patterns.
