Skewed Crossing, Outline
The Skewed Crossing sign may be used at a skewed highway-rail grade crossing to warn drivers that the railroad tracks are not perpendicular to the highway. If the Skewed Crossing sign is used, the symbol should show the direction of the crossing (near left to far right as shown in Figure 8B-5, or the mirror image if the track goes from far left to near right). If the Skewed Crossing sign is used where the angle of the crossing is significantly different than 45 degrees, the symbol should show the approximate angle of the crossing.
