I see other documents and signage, particularly in states with a lot of
agriculture, refer to hard and soft shoulders, and roads (especially
Interstate freeways) can have both simultaneously.

to refer to a hard shoulder closed to traffic that would be allowed in
other situations, like regular bicycle and foot traffic...
