Developing Pavement Marking Management Plans for Accommodating Advanced Vehicle Technologies in Wyoming

The objectives of this study are to develop strategic long-term pavement marking management plans for Wyoming. Specifically, five- and ten-year plans will be developed considering multiple scenarios having various budget levels. The plans will be developed considering road functional classifications, land uses and traffic volumes, which are all factors that influence the frequency of pavement marking maintenance activities. WYDOT will be implementing a pavement marking retroreflectivity measuring tool to aid in their pavement marking management program. For instance, freeways linking industrial areas are often used by tractor-trailers and thus would require frequent maintenance or durable marking material. On the other hand, two-lane highways characterized by low recreational traffic volumes and heavy vehicle percentages would require less frequent maintenance. Recommendations pertaining to a comprehensive pavement marking management program will be provided in the form of a report as well.
