Lessons Learned - Pavement Marking Warranty Contract

In 2012, Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) implemented a performance-based warranty on a portion of an I-15 pavement marking project. The awarded contract requested a contractor warranty on the implemented markings for a total duration of six years. This is the first time that UDOT has requested a warranty on pavement markings, and also the first time that Interstate Maintenance (IM) funds were used for pavement markings. This report documents lessons learned from the preconstruction, construction and post-construction phases of this project, collected through surveys of key involved UDOT personnel. It also includes a literature review on pavement marking warranty contracts in general, a review of the I-15 performance-based warranty contract, and reviews of previous, materials and workmanship warranty based pavement marking contracts of similar size. The estimated life-cycle and suggestions for benefit-cost analysis are also included.
