Safety Impacts of Using Wider Pavement Marking in Two Lane Rural Highways in Idaho

This project will determine if the use of wider longitudinal pavement markings for center lines, lane lines, and edge lines can provide critical information to drivers that will help them to better identify the roadway alignment and maintain appropriate lane position. Wider pavement marking will be implemented in selected sites that represent the diverse geometric and operational characteristics throughout the state. The safety impacts of implementing wider pavement markings on Idaho's rural two lane highways will then be analyzed and assessed.
