Description

In 2007 the Federal Highway Administration revised the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices to add this standard to Section 9C.04 Markings For Bicycle Lanes:

"Standard:
06 A through bicycle lane shall not be positioned to the right of a right turn only lane or to the left of a left turn only lane.
Support:
07 A bicyclist continuing straight through an intersection from the right of a right-turn lane or from the left of a left-turn lane would be inconsistent with normal traffic behavior and would violate the expectations of right- or left-turning motorists."

I know this bike lane was striped before the MUTCD had been updated, but it really should be updated to place the bike lane between the right-turn lane and the through lane (like the bike lane across the street).
