NMTA-2: Night Mobile Operation on Shoulder of High Speed Multi-Lane Highway

This figure illustrates an example of a night mobile operation on a road with two travel lanes heading in the same direction. The lanes are separated by a broken yellow line. Shoulders are shown to the left and right of the roadway and are separated from the roadway by solid white lines.

At the bottom of the diagram is a work vehicle labeled "Vehicle #3 – Advanced Warning Vehicle." This vehicle is equipped with a horizontal rectangular black arrow panel with four yellow dots in each corner and a truck-mounted attenuator. Also shown mounted on the back of Vehicle 3 is a diamond-shaped orange sign that reads "SHOULDER WORK AHEAD" in black. North of Vehicle #2, about half way up the diagram, is another work vehicle labeled "Vehicle #2 – Shadow Vehicle." This vehicle is also equipped with a horizontal rectangular black arrow panel with four yellow dots in each corner (labeled optional) and a truck-mounted attenuator (labeled optional). Mounted on the back of Vehicle 2 is a diamond-shaped orange sign that reads "SHOULDER WORK" in black. North of Vehicle 2 is another work vehicle, labeled "Vehicle #1 – Work Vehicle."

There are two vertical lines drawn to left of the left shoulder in parallel with the roadway. These lines indicate measured distances between the objects in the diagram. The first line stretches from the front end of Vehicle # 3 to the back end of Vehicle #2. The labeled distance for this stretch is "500-1500 feet." The next vertical line stretches from the front of Vehicle #2 to the back of Vehicle 1 and is labeled "See Note 2."
