Enhanced taxiway markings pop up at busiest U.S. airports

taxiwayIf you fly at one of the 72 busiest airports in the United States, you'll notice something different as you taxi to the runway hold-short line. Yellow dashes will soon be placed on both sides of the taxiway centerline within 150 feet of the runway hold-short line. This is intended to alert pilots that they are approaching a runway holding position and should cross-check their taxiing instructions to determine if they are cleared to cross the hold-short line. They will be installed at all major air carrier airports by June 30, 2008.
