TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss practices for applying pavement markings.  While pavement markings are a safety measure with a long history and broad use, there is a wide variety of practices, resulting in significant differences in paint quality from location to location. This webinar will present a case study of one state department of transportation that improved year-round maintained retroreflectivity of their waterborne traffic paint by focusing on quality and education. The presenters will also focus on materials testing for both paint and beads, and they will demonstrate how materials testing and selection processes may improve marking visibility.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Signing and Marking Materials.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar.  Sign into to view registration information.
