 Centerline Logs


Markings on highways have important functions in providing guidance and information for the road user. Major marking types include pavement and curb markings, object markers, delineators, colored pavements, barricades, channelizing devices and islands. In some cases, markings are used to supplement other traffic control devices such as signs, signals and other markings. In other instances, markings are used alone to effectively convey regulations, guidance, or warnings in ways not obtainable by the use of other devices.

Markings have limitations. Visibility of the markings can be limited by snow, debris, and water on or adjacent to the markings. Marking durability is affected by material characteristics, traffic volumes, weather, and location. However, under most highway conditions, markings provide important information while allowing minimal diversion of attention from the roadway.

Pavement markings can enhance roadway delineation with the addition of audible and tactile features such as bars, differential surface profiles, raised pavement markers, or other devices intended to alert the road user that a delineation on the roadway is being traversed.


 No Passing Zones


A No Passing Zone at a horizontal or vertical curve is warranted where the sight distance as defined in Section 3B-5 of the Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (OMUTCD) is less that the minimum necessary for safe passing at the prevailing speed of traffic.

No Passing Zones may be marked at rural and urban intersections where an engineering judgement so dictates. The decision as to whether or not a No Passing Zone should be marked is a matter of discretionary engineering judgment. There is explicitly no requirement under the OMUTCD that No Passing Zones shall be marked at intersections, notwithstanding the provisions of any other section of the OMUTCD.

A list of document logs for each state-maintained route in District 7's nine counties are available at the links below.
