The narrow bridge sign is a warning sign. It looks very similar to the narrow road sign, but indicates that the bridge ahead is more narrow than the road the driver is currently on. Bridges are typically more narrow because the shoulders are narrowed or eliminated. When drivers are crossing a narrow bridge they should slow down and watch out for oncoming traffic.
