INDOT: Pavement Markings

Pavement markings are used to convey messages to roadway users They indicate which part of the road to use, what conditions lay ahead and where passing is allowed Pavement markings include both centerline and edge-line paint striping or special markings, such as stop bars, railroad crossings and.

Research

The intent of this project was to develop retroreflectivity degradation curves for roadway pavement markings To accomplish this objective, this study utilized a vehicle-mounted Laserlux retroreflectometer to take measurements on approximately 80 test sections throughout Washington state.

Nighttime Visibility

This site contains information about three important areas that impact nighttime visibility Adequately maintained retroreflective signs, pavement markings, and roadway lighting improve nighttime highway visibility and reduce the risk of crashes by increasing visibility for drivers and other roadway users.

Road surface marking

Glass beads composed of soda lime glass are essential for providing retroreflectivity in many kinds of road markings Retroreflectivity occurs when incident light from vehicles is refracted within glass beads that are imbedded in road markings and then reflected back into the driver's field of view.

Pavement Marking Durability Statewide

In short, inlaid polyurea markings were found to provide the longest acceptable level of service, while thermoplastic markings appeared to the most cost-effective marking material over the life of the markings However, the cost effectiveness modeled above presumes that there is no benefit to retroreflectivity in excess of the minimum standard.

Road Marking

defined as the retroreflectivity of the markings This is a measurement of the efficiency of the marking to return light in the general direction from which it came It is simply a ratio of the light visible to the driver compared to the light entering the pavement marking from the vehicle’s headlamps 2.

Retroreflectivity

Retroreflectivity, or nighttime visibility of signs and pavement markings, is essential for efficient traffic flow, driving comfort, and highway safety in general Pavement marking and road signs are visible at night because the light from headlights is reflected back into drivers’ eyes by retroreflectors embedded into the signs or road strip.
