Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 51-03. Temporary Pavement Markings Placement and Removal Practices in Work Zones

The placement, maintenance and removal of temporary or permanent pavement markings in work zones is challenging. The placement, maintenance and removal of temporary pavement markings within the work zone may create driver confusion. The process and timing associated with placing or removing pavement markings may interrupt or impede construction operations and require extensive DOT coordination. It is common for pavement marking placement and removal to be a significantly delayed sub-phase of construction, and can also increase the risk of incidents or crashes within the work zone. This objective of this synthesis is to document state department of transportation (DOT) practice for pavement marking placement, maintenance and removal in work zones. Information will be gathered through literature review, a survey of DOT’s, and interviews with selected agencies for the development of case examples. Knowledge gaps and suggestions for research to address those gaps will be identified.
