Creating a plan for managing sign retroreflectivity in your jurisdiction can get extremely complicated. Which of the assessment or management methods described by the FHWA is right for your agency? How can you be sure the method you choose is appropriate for all areas in your jurisdiction? What if you don’t have an inventory of signs yet? How much will all this cost?
Two tools from the Center for Technology & Training at the Michigan Tech Transportation Institute can help. The Sign Retro Management Selection Tool and the Sign Inventory Cost Estimator Tool provide an easy way to answer all of these questions and more. Used together, the tools will help you evaluate multiple combinations of assessment or management methods, and then develop a strategy that best meets the needs of your agency. The tools will help you determine the direction you should go and they will provide you an estimate for how much it will cost to get there.
