Centerline Rumble Strip Effects on Pavement Performance

This research would have three major objectives: (1) quantify the impacts of centerline rumble strips (CLRS) installation on the performance and maintenance of all the pavement types currently used in Oregon, including in mountainous areas or snow zones; (2) identify the best construction practices for CLRS installation to avoid any negative impacts on pavement performance; and (3) Identify, evaluate, and compare the effectiveness of potential surface treatment options to mitigate any pavement performance issues pre- and post-installation of CLRS by considering performance, cost, and safety.
