Summary:
Paper 1: The paper discusses an investigation of the extent to which motor vehicles remain bunched together when traveling freely down a semi-expressway type of facility after having been formed into platoons by an isolated signalized intersection. Paper 2: Pavement edge strips were placed on a limited mileage of 2-lane rural roads with 24-ft bituminous surfaces in Louisiana. The stripes are reflectorized 4-in.  Read more...

Abstract:

Paper 1: The paper discusses an investigation of the extent to which motor vehicles remain bunched together when traveling freely down a semi-expressway type of facility after having been formed into platoons by an isolated signalized intersection. Paper 2: Pavement edge strips were placed on a limited mileage of 2-lane rural roads with 24-ft bituminous surfaces in Louisiana. The stripes are reflectorized 4-in. solid white lines placed approximately 12 inches from the edge of the pavement. The study was conducted to determine the effect that a broken or continuous line at various distances from the pavement edge has on the lateral placement of vehicles. Another objective was to find a pattern of broken line giving maximum contrast to the standard center line with minimum costs.
