STATE-OF-THE-ART ON ROADWAY DELINEATION SYSTEMS

Roadway delineation treatments and systems are those devices and techniques which individually or in combination provide guidance, regularoty, or warning information to drivers under various highway situations. This state-of-the-art report on roadway delineation systems constitutes an update to the National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 130. In the first part of the report, studies documented since the publication of NCHRP Report 130 are reviewed. This review is organized under two headings; Delineation Situations and Delineation Treatments. Under the former heading, studies relative to the application of different delineation treatments and systems for various highway situations are evaluated. The latter heading contains reviews of the studies from the standpoint of materials, cost, maintenance, durability and environmental effects. Recommendations subject to ongoing research on delineation applications under different highway situations are given in the second part. A partially annotated bibliography is also included.
