median section

me·di·an sec·tion

a cross section attained by slicing in the median plane, actually or through imaging techniques, the body or any part of the body that occupies or crosses the median plane or by slicing any generally symmetric anatomic structure, such as a finger or a cell, in its midline. Because actual sectioning of the median plane results in right and left halves, an anatomic median section may be a two-dimensional view of the cut surface on the medial aspect of either half.
Synonym(s): midsagittal section

Ratliff said, "The first phase was to complete the construction of the median section and the second phase was to complete the southbound lane of the project.
About 85 percent of lane expansion takes place in the middle median section. The balance of the expansion occurs on outside lanes due to construction of exits or bridges.
Obviously, the 2WLTL is more economical than a curbed median section. If a desirable minimum width of six ft is assumed for island noses of recessed left turn lanes (for pedestrian refuge), then this amount of right-of-way width is also saved, as well as the cost of installing curbing and any other treatments for the median area.
Pedestrian accident rates, on the routes with painted centerlines only, were found to be twice those of the 2WLTL and four times those of the barrier median sections in the CBD areas.
Coyle said, noting the plan for brick-stamped crosswalks and some brick-stamped median sections.
