To assist with review and construction, all NCDOT Pavement Marking Plans shall contain the same information, in the same format, whether they are produced by the NCDOT SDU, a Division, a Municipality, or a PEF. The Signing Plan and Pavement Marking Plan should be separated on all projects. Any deviation will require NCDOT approval. The general elements of a pavement marking plan are as follows and shall appear in this order in all plan sets if required:
- Title Sheet
- Key Sheet (optional, include for urban/ complex projects)
- Revised Roadway Standard Drawings
- Pavement Marking Schedule
- Pavement Marking Plan Sheets
All sheets for a Pavement Marking Plan should use the “PMP-“prefix. The sheet numbering should use the following format:
- PMP-1: Title Sheet, Key Sheet, Revised Roadway Standard Drawings
- PMP-2: Detail Sheets
- PMP-3: Pavement Marking Plan Sheets
If certain elements are not required, the next element shall use the number of the element that is not used.
Example: If Detail Sheets and Revised Roadway Standard Drawings are not required, then the Pavement Marking Plan Sheets shall begin on PMP-2.
If additional sheets are needed for PMP-1, 2, and 3, letters shall be used for any additional sheets. If additional letters beyond “Z" are needed, double and triple letters shall be used.
Examples: PMP-2 is followed by PMP-2A. PMP-2Z is followed by PMP-2AA.
