Traffic Sign Retroreflectivity Maintenance Program - Implementation Guide for Ohio's Local Agencies
Need help on where to start with implementing your Sign Retroreflectivity Maintenance Program ? We have the resource for you! The Ohio LTAP Center has developed a job aid to assist Ohio's local roadway agencies with this process.
The resource publication/package is called "Getting Started: Implementing a Traffic Sign Retroreflectivity Maintenance Program." It is designed to:
  • introduce the new sign retroreflectivity requirements;
  • review the available methods an agency can choose from to maintain the retroreflectivity of their signs;
  • provide three examples of customizable program templates;
  • outline additional resources available concerning the new retroreflectivity standards.
This resource is primarily being distributed by electronic means. Interested persons are welcome to download and/or print their own copies as needed.

BONUS Resource:  An excellent instructional video called "Narrated Explanation of the Minimum Retroreflectivity Numbers" can be viewed through the FHWA Sign Retroreflectivity Toolkit website. 

If you have questions, please contact Mike Fitch at (614) 387-7358 or Mike.Fitch@dot.ohio.gov.
