FIELD EVALUATION OF SNOWPLOWABLE PAVEMENT MARKERS

The objective of this study was to evaluate available snowplowable markers under similar traffic and snowplow operations. Ffive different markers were tested: Stimsonite 96, Dura-Brite, recessed, Kingray, and Prismo roadstud. The evaluation revealed that the Stimsonite 96, Dura-Brite, and recessed markers were acceptable snowplowable markers, because all three had adequate reflectivity during both dry and wet nighttime conditions. This reflectivity wa maintained over the test period, and the markers proved to be durable when subjected to snowplow operations. Nevertheless, considering all available input, the recessed marker is recommended as the most functional and cost-effective markers. (Author)
