How can the quality of pavement markings be improved in a cost-effective and efficient manner? TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, August 10, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss how organizations can use field trials as tools for improving pavement markings. Presenters will describe transverse test decks that may be used to evaluate pavement markings, explaining how to choose the design parameters. The webinar will explore how to mine existing data and compare products, and presenters will identify how to utilize this data to make informed pavement marking material selections.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Traffic Control Devices.
