A Pavement Marking Inventory and Retroreflectivity Condition Assessment Method Using Mobile LiDAR – Phase 2

The objective of Phase 2 of this study is to monitor pavement marking retroreflectivity conditions and surface material completeness using the Phase I pavement marking testing sites comprised of epoxy, thermoplastics, and polyurea materials, and additional new pavement marking testing sites comprised of waterborne and preformed tape materials. The results of the Phase 2 study will be used to develop a draft SOP for routine in-service pavement marking retroreflectivity measurement that meets the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) Revision 3 compliance requirement.
