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.
The guide is available below as a complete file for download and in individual sections for quicker downloading.
BONUS Resource: An excellent instructional video called "Narrated Explanation of the Minimum Retroreflectivity Numbers" can be viewed through the FHWA Sign Retroreflectivity Toolkit website at this link: http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/roadway_dept/night_visib/retrotoolkit/requirements/table2a-3.htm
