Color-Safe Pavement Markings
New Methylmethacrylate surface for the bike path installation for the City of Syracuse Connective Corridor.
The Connective Corridor is a showcase for green infrastructure, which is an approach that progressive communities are utilizing to protect healthy water, provide multiple environmental benefits and support sustainability. Unlike conventional stormwater infrastructure, green infrastructure uses vegetation and soil to manage rainwater where it falls. The EPA recommends this approach as a natural processes for the built environment, and as a way to better manage stormwater, mitigate erosion and flooding, enhance air quality management, and much more.
The new “greenway” methylmethacrylate bike lanes also represent a novel approach to emerging technologies. This new generation resin provides exceptional durability on asphalt and concrete, skid-resistance, and the highest reflective values for safety. This new “greenway” bike network in Syracuse will be one of the first in the country to implement new MUTCD standards – a recently adopted national standard for pavement markings.
Not only is this a decorative streetscape project that enhances the sustainability goals of the Connective Corridor, but it a smart transportation project – creating a multi-modal pathway that is truly about safety and mobility. Other communities will be watching us, as we set new standards!
