ROADSIDE DELINEATION CONCEPTS: A NATIONAL STUDY

THE NEED FOR NATIONAL, UNIFORM DESIGNS AND APPLICATIONS OF ROADSIDE DELINEATION HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED BY TRAFFIC AUTHORITIES. A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY WAS, THEREFORE, UNDERTAKEN TO OBTAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF PRESENT PRACTICES OF ROADSIDE DELINEATION AND TO FURTHER ESTABLISH CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION OF AN OPTIMUM ROADSIDE DELINEATION TREATMENT AT A GIVEN CONDITION. IN THIS STUDY, AN EXTENSIVE LITERATURE REVIEW AND A NATIONAL SURVEY OF ALL STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS WERE CONDUCTED TO FORM A STATE-OF-THE-ART SUMMARY OF ROADSIDE DELINEATION CONCEPTS. ATTEMPTS TO FORMULATE A UNIFORM SELECTION PROCESS FOR ROADSIDE DELINEATION TREATMENTS INVOLVED DISCUSSIONS OF EVALUATION CRITERIA AND PRESENTATION OF A SUGGESTED SELECTION PROGRAM. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY PROVIDE UPDATED AND THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF EXISTING AND PROPOSED ROADSIDE DELINEATION TECHNIQUES.
