Development of Delineator Material/Impact Testing Specific to Managed lane Use for Optimization of Service Life

The objective of this project is to develop a delineator material/impact compliance standard for managed lane separators that focuses on optimizing delineator service life. The standard should include a test method that is reproducible, represents failure modes witnessed through field observations, and is cost effective. Products currently listed on the FDOT APL will be evaluated according to the developed compliance standard. As part of the development process, the researchers will recommend delineator characteristics that prolong service life of the installations. The resulting compliance standard will be implemented through FDOT specifications and standards.
