Rumble Strip Design Analysis For Low Exterior Noise and Durability of Inlaid Stripes

The goal of the research is for Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to identify an implementable rumble design (strip, stripe, or combination inlaid), which is acceptable in noise output to communities who live close to the highway, but without the rumble losing its safety benefit of alerting drivers when they depart the road. Documentation of rumble strip/stripE designs that meet the previously documented strip design criteria. This documentation will be delivered in the format of a proposed design specification for use by ODOT and other road authorities.
