Abstract

A one mile section each of thermoplastic and epoxy pavement marking materials were placed on new ACC pavement near Carroll, IA on Highway 30. The markings were evaluated for four years to see if they were suitable materials for durable pavement markings. The epoxy markings were inadvertently repainted after two years. They were performing well up to that time with little plow damage and good retroreflectivity. The thermoplastic dash lines suffered heavy snow plow damage after the first year and were repainted after the third winter. The thermoplastic edge lines performed fairly well for four years.
