TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report Feasibility Study for an All-White Pavement Marking System presents the findings of a research project to evaluate the feasibility of implementing an all-white pavement marking system in the United States; the findings include researchers' recommendations that an all-white pavement marking system not be.


The research conducted under this project identified the benefits, costs, drawbacks, and implementation issues of switching from the present two-color pavement marking system to an all-white pavement marking system.

The use of yellow and white pavement markings has been the subject of debate for transportation agencies since the s. Inthe Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices first specified that yellow markings.

Pavement markings provide useful visual and navigational guidance information to motorists. Current warrants for the application of pavement markings in the United States are based on traffic volume, traveled way width, and number of travel lanes.

To be effective, pavement markings must be visible to drivers, particularly at night. only a contrast‐enhancing system for the markings. MUTCD SECTION 3A WIDTHS AND PATTERNS OF LONGITUDINAL PAVEMENT MARKINGS Standard: The widths and patterns of longitudinal lines shall be as follows: A.

A normal line is to mm (4 to 6 in) wide. visibility of signing and pavement markings at night from a commercial vehicle driver’s perspective. Through a nighttime controlled field study, the relationship between vehicle type (passenger car versus commercial vehicle) and sign/pavement marking material.

For more details about this communication system, take a look at the MnDOT Pavement Marking Field Guide. As stated in the MnDOT Provisions for Pavement Marking Operations, MnDOT’s goal is to provide an appropriate pavement marking on all highways, days a year.

Other questions. For more technical information on pavement marking, contact. contrast markings, a state-of-the-practice with respect to contrast markings, and a study of driver understanding and preference with respect to contrast markings were all conducted.

After studying multiple wet-night pavement marking products and standard pavement marking. Design and Construction Standards Section is responsible for the Infrastructure Design Manual, Standard Construction Specifications, Standard Drawings, and Product Approval.

Register for our newsletter. Over the last decade, increasing attention has been devoted to the potential of converting U.S. pavement markings to an all-white system. There are many reasons and potential benefits for doing so. Pavement markings provide important information to road users.

There are several sources of information that TxDOT engineers, designers, and inspectors can use to obtain the information needed to effectively select, spec ify, and inspect marki ngs. This handbook attempts to tie all of that. Feasibility Study for an All-White Pavement Marking System, NCHRP ReportTransportation Research Board, Washington, D.C., TxDOT.

The objective of NCHRP Synthesis Topic was to identify current U.S. and international practices in asset management for six classes of nonpavement, nonbridge infrastructure assets: traffic signals, signing, lighting, pavement markings, culverts, and sidewalks. Addressed are the study's findings in regard to pavement markings specifically.

The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) is a document issued by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) to specify the standards by which traffic signs, road surface markings, and signals are designed, installed, and used.

These specifications include the shapes, colors, and fonts used in road markings and signs. for such a full-scale system.

Since surface condition is the most vital element in any pavement management system, managers may use the simplified rating system presented in this manual on asphalt airfield pavements to evaluate their asphalt pavements.

A PASER manual for concrete airfield pavements is also available (see references, page 24). NCHRP Report Feasibility Study for an All-White Pavement Marking System HG Hawkins Jr, AH Parham, KN Womack Transportation Research Board, National Research Council, Washington, DC.

The first study type was controlled pavement marking removal evaluations where the researchers controlled the marking types, road surfaces, and removal methods used.

The second study type was the evaluation of pavement marking removal operations as part of planned high- way maintenance or construction as they occurred or after they were.

Short term pavement markings shall be applied conforming to MUTCD and as amended by Table 1. Short term pavement markings shall not conflict with permanent pavement markings. Short term pavement markings placed on final surface course shall be of the removable type.

A temporary raised pavement marker may be used in place of one m line. Since the United States is a very influential country in North America, most other countries bordering them emulated its system to a degree.
