Road markings known as “shoulder lines” have caused some confusion in Logan, particularly in two high-traffic sections of roadway.

In response to questions about the markings from a local resident, The Herald Journal on Monday contacted the Utah Department of Transportation to clarify the intent of such road markings and how drivers are supposed to handle them.

 

One of the shoulder lines in question begins on the right side of northbound Main Street at 1400 North and tapers off just before a designated right-turn lane at 1600 North. The other is painted on westbound 200 North between Main Street and just past the entrance to the U.S. Post Office, where it also tapers off before an official right-turn lane at 100 West.
