Mergingtraffic:
Anybody notice the new way CT DOT are striping the end of a slow vehicle lane?

The 10' broken dash line seems to end early and then they paint 3 big "merge left" arrows without the 10" broken line, so truckers or cars in the slow vehicle lane drift over sooner than they have to.  And with some of these aux/slow vehicle lanes trucks need as much as they can in that lane.

For awhile, they'd go from 10' to 4' dashes towards the end of the lane until the solid white line met up with it.  It seemed cleaner that way and you knew exactly how much time you had left.

Here's one example:

ConnDOT seems to start the short dashed line for exit-only lanes early compared to other states. For CT 17 SB from CT 2 EB, it starts 1/2 mile in advance. (the project ShadyJay mentioned on 22 August will remove the exit-only lane for 17).

In the same area westbound, CT 2 has two rows of short dashed lines: one for a lane merging in from Griswold Street, and the other for the CT 3 exit-only lane: https://goo.gl/maps/ShDhPRbL4QibT6mx6

It's supposed to start at the first Exit Only sign.

The aerial view that goes with that same Street View is older and shows the dashed line.

A few minutes ago, I was looking through GSV of US 1 in the Greenwich/Cos Cob area, and I didn't see a single sign telling motorists how they can get to any of the Metro-North stations there.


Now why is that? In neighboring Westchester County, they're in every city and village along US 1 that has a station.
