This tool calculates the appropriate minimum taper length for various taper types per the requirements in the FHWA’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

Taper Length, L = Merging-Taper Rate x Offset Distance . 2. The desirable length is 100 ft / lane. 3. Figure 76-2C illustrates the various types of tapers. LONGITUDINAL TAPER RATE AND LENGTH A short taper having a minimum length of 50 feet and a maximum length of 100 feet with channelizing devices at approximately 20-foot spacing should be used to guide traffic into the one-lane section, and a downstream taper with a length of 100 feet should be used to guide traffic back into their original lane. roadway, and the work area on the shoulder should be preceded by a shoulder taper, see Figure 3. Shoulder tapers should have a minimum length of L/3 where L is computed using the formulas on page 1 with W being the width of the shoulder. Refer to Standard Road Plans TC-202 and TC-402.

### The state DOT here uses the formula in MUTCD found on page 3B-5 and 3B-19 (as well as other locations in chapter 3): "For three-lane roadways having a posted or statutory speed limit of 70 km/h (45 mph) or greater, the lane transition taper length should be computed by
