Cracking of Overhead Sign Structures and Their Repair Using Composite Fabric as a Wrap

Delaware, like several other states, has encountered cracking of overhead sign structures (OSS). This project seeks to investigate a method of repair, namely the use of composite fiber wraps. New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has apparently used this technique successfully, and the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is looking for a summary of the technology and a how-to document that can be used by technicians in the field. The primary focus of this work is the repair of cracked secondary sign members.
