Evaluation and Specification of High Build and Special Use Waterborne Pavement Markings

High build waterborne traffic paints and highly retro-reflective elements were applied at various locations to evaluate their practicality for use by New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Maintenance forces. In addition, highly reflective elements were applied within grooved in areas to protect the elements and determine if grooving the markings extends service life. High build traffic paint from 2 manufactures was applied at various locations. Performance of high build paint was not noticeably different than standard traffic paint, ceramic elements performed well under dry and wet conditions, grooving operation was costly but showed potential for durability and protection of highly retro-reflective elements.
