Rumble Strips Installation on Thin Pavement Overlays

The purpose of this project was to establish a synthesis of best practices from various state and other transportation agency stakeholders regarding the installation and re-installation of rumble strips on pavements treated with a thin pavement overlay. This was completed based on a review of existing literature and a state transportation agency outreach effort. The best practices are intended to provide a standardized, cost-effective process for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to effectively utilize rumble strips in conjunction with thin pavement overlays. These include three rumble strip types (centerline, edge line, and shoulder), two standard rumble strip depths (3/8-inch and ½-inch), and three thin overlay types (hot-mix asphalt, microsurfacing, and seal coat).
