Research Plan for Assessing Friction of Pavement Markings

Current pavement marking guidelines include limited consideration of friction and other surface characteristics. Also, available research on pavement marking friction is limited and does not address pavement marking friction's role in the safety of road users, particularly motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. There is a need to document current practices and technologies relevant to pavement marking friction and identify the research needed to enhance available test methods and approaches. This information will provide a basis for a future research effort that will identify rational practices and technologies for assessing pavement marking friction to enhance safety. The objectives of this research are to (1) document the current practices for testing and evaluating friction of pavement markings an (2) recommend a research plan to develop a validated approach for assessing the friction of pavement markings.
