Description: The objective of this project is to investigate field evaluation plans and procedures and develop field performance-based evaluation procedures for pavement marking materials (PMMs). Field decks are designed incorporating regular long lines, long line in the travel lane, and transverse lines for accelerated testing, while also considering different installation procedures. Three different test field deck sites are selected across the state considering area climate, roadway surface type, and traffic condition. Carefully selected PMM products are installed and monitored for their field performance over time. The relationships between transverse and longitudinal test decks are evaluated with correlation analysis. A tracking database is developed and can record and interactively query all relevant data, track individual jobs and products, and graphically display performance changes over time.
