Triangular Island Traffic Control Devices In Delaware

QUESTION: What corrections need to be made in intersection picture above (DE #4 and Harmony Road — Newark DE).

ANSWER: Absolutely none according to DelDOT: Intersection #5-13 has “…a triangular island separating the through traffic movement from the right-turn traffic movement…” (arrow #1). Intersection #5-13 has a YIELD SIGN (arrow #2): “…when a triangular island is striped or exists as a concrete island between the right-turn movement and the adjacent through movements, the proper traffic control for the right-turn movement is a YIELD condition.” No STOP LINE required: “…the right-turn movement should not have a STOP LINE and should have a YIELD SIGN.”

SPECIAL NOTE: Some Inconsistencies/Confusions of intersections identified may have been adjusted by DelDOT since the publishing of this course.
