Recessed Pavement Markings
Recessing Pavement Markings allows the markings to be out of reach from snowplow blades and helps reduce general wear and tear. With the use of our fleet of recessing equipment, we are able to groove faster, and more accurately than ever before.
Snow plows play havoc with pavement markings. To improve the longevity of expensive markings, many DOT's have resorted to recessing the marking below the surface of the roadway. To accomplish this, we utilize large "grooving" trucks that are both economical and efficient in the means of grooving the roadway surface.
Diamond blades are stacked and groove the surface of the roadway providing a smooth surface for Preformed Plastic to adhere to.
Outside of grooving for Preformed Plastic, we often groove the roadway surface for Epoxy, Methyl Methacrylate and Preformed Thermoplastic to allow for recessing away from snowplow blades.
Intersection markings are important in way finding, as well as pedestrian safety. They are also one of the quickest to wear out with constant heavy traffic turning and stopping on the markings.
Recessed markings have been growing in popularity over the years as it provides some protection against snow plows and other common occurrences that reduces the markings useful life span.
Grooved intersection markings can be Preformed Plastic, Preformed Thermoplastic, Methyl Methacrylate , Epoxy or Paint.
