This podcast provides a summary of how impact testing is conducted on traffic control products, specifically delineators and drums. It outlines how product performance is measured and reported.
To learn more about the testing protocol and data usage for the Temporary Traffic Control Device technical committee at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), click here. Testing results are posted in DataMine, a central repository of data for the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP).
AASHTO’s National Transportation Product Evaluation Program is a public-private partnership that prevents duplication of efforts among the 52 State Departments of Transportation. This audio-enhanced, animated slideshow outlines the benefits states receive by participating in this rapidly growing technical service program.
